  1. GlycoSuiteDB (View Publication)
    Full Name of the Resource : N- and O-linked glycan structures and biological sources
    Resource Category : Databases -> Structure Databases -> Carbohydrates

    Brief Description : GlycoSuiteDB release 5, January 2003, contains more than 7800 annotated entries of glycan structures derived from glycoproteins, or free oligosaccharides isolated from biologically important fluids such as milk, saliva and urine. For each structure information is available concerning the glycan type, linkage and anomeric configuration, mass and composition. Detailed information is provided on native and recombinant sources, including species, tissue and/or cell type, cell line, strain, blood group and disease state. There are over 1000 different biological sources represented in GlycoSuiteDB, from over 200 different tissue or cell types. Where known, the proteins to which the glycan structures are attached are described, and cross- references to SWISS-PROT are given if applicable. The database annotations include literature references which are linked to PubMed. Detailed information on the methods used to determine each glycan structure are provided to help the user assess the quality of the structural assignment. The web site ( allows the user to search the database using a combination of 2-D glycan structure, composition, glycan linkage type, reducing-terminal sugar residue, glycan mass (monoisotopic or average), species, biological system, tissue or cell type, disease state, protein name, SWISS-PROT/TrEMBL accession number, or reference information. Results can be sorted by glycan mass, protein name, tissue or cell type, disease state or taxonomy. The emphasis of this database is to be consistent. This will enable reliable mining of the information for future applications of glycobiology.
