In this chapter, we discuss the structural glycobiology of the key antibody?carbohydrate interactions important in xenotransplantation and cancer immunotherapy. Progress in both fields is reliant on further mechanistic knowledge of the underlying complex biosynthetic pathways and the structural basis for antibody recognition of isolated and cellular forms of the target carbohydrates.
