This chapter summarizes the current understanding of how specific carbohydrates are made by glycosyltransferases on glycoproteins in neural cells and the important functions of these carbohydrates in neural development. It also describes recent findings on sulfated carbohydrates and polysialic acid as functional terminal structures in glycoproteins.

Keywords:   glycoproteins, sulfated glycans, polysialic acid, neural development, sialyltransferases, polysialyltransferases, polysialic acid expression
