An international team has used X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to identify the key determinants of a recognition process that relies chiefly on sialic acid, a glycan that is expressed on all human cells, to let the immune system distinguish between "friend" and "foe". The findings could have important implications for immunology, vaccine research and understanding autoimmune disease.View All Ezines
