Definition

Protein with at least one sialic acid. The term "sialic acid" refers to the group of sugars including neuraminic acid and its derivatives, not to a specific sugar. They are widely distributed in bacteria and animal tissue as components of polysaccharides, glycoproteins and glycolipids. They are typically the terminal residues on cell surface oligosaccharides.
