Abstract

Glycans participate in many key cellular processes during development and in physiology and disease. In this review, the functional role of various glycans in the regeneration of neurons and body parts in adult metazoans is discussed. Understanding glycosylation may facilitate research in the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
