A human body consists of a number of cells called 60 trillion. These cells interact each other and response for environmental signal to form a precise human body system. We are trying to understand various biological phenomena involving this system with a molecular level, especially by focusing on carbohydrates expressed on proteins. Moreover, we hope that the result of our research can contribute to develop a diagnosis at super-early stage of disease. We would like to advance research with young students having a dream.

Research Projects

Decoding of the biological information in sugar chains (Oka)
The function of proteins is regulated in vivo not only by transcriptional control of gene expression but also by post-translational modifications. Glycosylation is one of the major post-translational modifications and a large number of proteins, in fact, undergo this modification. In the post-genomic era, it is very important to decode the biological information encoded in the sugar chains. In our project we focus on structure and function of sugar chains expressed in the nervous system and in development during embryogenesis.
