Glycosylation of Notch receptors regulates ligand-induced Notch signaling, which is essential for normal development in animals. Fucose analogs targeting Notch glycosylation serve as ligand-specific Notch inhibitors and facilitate the understanding of how O-glycan regulates Notch–ligand interactions.
