glycosyl

 [gli´ko-sil]
a radical derived from a carbohydrate.

gly·co·syl

(glī'kō-sil),
The radical resulting from detachment of the OH of the hemiacetal or hemiketal of a saccharide. Compare: glycoside.

glycosyl

/gly·co·syl/ (gli´ko-sil) a radical derived from a carbohydrate by removal of the anomeric hydroxyl group.

glycosyl

[glī′kōsil]
the radical formed from a saccharide, such as glucose, by removal of a specific hydroxyl group.

glycosyl

a radical derived from a carbohydrate.

glycosyl transferases
enzymes catalyzing the transfer of a monosaccharide unit from a nucleotide-linked sugar to the non-reducing end of an oligosaccharide chain, or to an appropriate functional group on a protein.
