Swainsonine is a potent inhibitor of Golgi alpha-mannosidase II, immunomodulator and potential anticancer agent. Disruption of Golgi alpha-mannosidase II with swainsonine induces hybrid-type glycans. These glycans have a Man5GlcNAc2 core with processing on the 3-arm that resembles so-called complex-type glycans.
