Structure and Activity of Glycosaminoglycans Group (Hugues Lortat-Jacob)

The SAGAG group studies the structure, function and biosynthesis of a group of polysaccharides collectively known as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). GAGs are present at the cell - extracellular matrix interface, and are thus strategically located to regulate diverse biological and pathological processes including cell-cell communication, signalling, cell-matrix interactions and pathogenic infections.
