Description

Application

N-Acetylneuraminic acid (NANA, Neu5Ac) is a major component of glycoconjugates such as glycolipids, glycoproteins and proteoglycans (sialogylcoproteins) where it confers selective binding characteristics to the glycosylated component. Neu5Ac is used to study its biochemistry, metabolism and uptake in vivo and in vitro. Neu5Ac is used in the development of nanocarriers.
