dissacharides and polysaccharides
« on: February 01, 2007, 04:21:27 AM »


What is the process through which monosaccharides form disaccharides and/or polysaccharides?

Two terms are used: glycosylation (more general), and glycosidation (blycosidic bond between sugars)

Basically, condensation between monomers of the monosaccharide to form glycosidic bond(s).
