Abstract

Hybridization of a self-assembled, spherical complex with oligosaccharides containing Lewis X, a functional trisaccharide displayed on various cell surfaces, yielded well-defined glycoclusters. The self-assembled glycoclusters exhibited homophilic hyper-assembly in aqueous solution in a Ca2+-dependent manner through specific carbohydrate–carbohydrate interactions, offering a structural scaffold for functional biomimetic systems.
