N-linked enzymatic glycosylation modulates the function of proteins and contributes to development of age-related metabolic abnormalities. Whether physical activity (PA) is linked to a specific N-glycan profile and can offset detrimental links between N-glycans and metabolic risk profile has never been explored. The aim of the present study is to assess serum N-glycan profile in older women with different PA levels and metabolic risk status.
