Glycobiology and Glycopathology

Coordinators: Prof. Fabio Dall’Olio, Dr. Mariella Chiricolo and Dr. Nadia Malagolini.

Glycosylation is one of the most important postransductional modifications of proteins, which contributes to the regulation of many cellular and molecular interactions. This group investigates the alteration of glycosylation associated with colon and bladder cancer, as well as during apoptosis and in aging. Research in cancer utilizes both clinical specimens and experimental models in which the glycosylation machinery has been genetically manipulated. Reaserch in the field of apoptosis is aimed at the identification of the glycosylation changes associated with apoptosis and to the comprehension of their functional impact. Research on aging is aimed at the identification of the changes of glycosylation of serum proteins, associated with both calendar and biological aging.
