What is GlycoGene DataBase (GGDB)?

Glycogenes include glycosyltransferases, sugar-nucleotide synthases, sugar-nucleotide transporters, sulfotransferases, and other genes related to glycosylation. Currently, approximately 200 or more human glycogenes have been identified, cloned, and characterized. The GlycoGene Database (GGDB) is the first database to collect data on these glycogenes and to store information on substrate specificity. GGDB provides necessary information for the analysis of glycogenes.


The production of those experimental data was supported by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). The construction of this database, network security and web application security were supported by the Advanced Computing Center (TACC) of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).

The update of this database was supported by JST-NBDC Life Science Database Integration Project Grant Number <JPMJND2204>.
