Drug discovery research using a cluster effect

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Carbohydrates bind proteins multivalently to enhance the affinity between them. This multivalent interaction called a glycoside cluster effect has received much attention from not only carbohydrate chemists but also medicinal and natural product chemists. Herein the recent progress of the drug discovery research using a cluster effect is reviewed.
