(redirected from Glycosidic linkage)

glycosidic bond

or

glycosidic link

a bond between the anomeric carbon of a carbohydrate and another group or molecule.

glycosidic bond

the covalent bond between two monosaccharides to form a disaccharide.

N-glycosidic bond, linkage
a type of carbohydrate-protein covalent linkage between an asparagine side chain amide and a sugar; type I linkage.
O-glycosidic bond, linkage
a type of carbohydrate-protein covalent linkage between a serine or threonine hydroxyl side chain amide and a sugar; type II linkage.

The latter effect refers to conformational preferences about the glycosidic linkage in pyranosides and has been shown by Lemieux to play a significant role in controlling the conformational preferences of oligosaccharides such as the blood group antigens; the preferences are of importance in molecular recognition events mediated by carbohydrate-protein interactions.
