Welcome to the Unverzagt Group.


Our research focuses on the chemical synthesis and the biological

investigation of signaling molecules for cells. We are developing

and improving syntheses for three classes of biomolecules:

oligosaccharides, peptides and glycoproteins. Oligosaccharides

are playing a major role in cell-surface binding events, protein

stability and immunology and can be considered an emerging field

in bioscience. Oligosaccharides have potential as diagnostic markers

and vaccines and can be synthesized by chemical and enzymatic

methods. Proteins and glycoproteins are of high interest for biotechnology

since their recombinant production provides many pharmaceutical

products such as cellular growth factors or monoclonal antibodies.
