Yes the Glycoproteins and Glycolipids are involved in cell to cell recognition through the use of hormones. You can recognise a glycoprotein because it will have a polysaccharide (carbohydrate) chain poking out of the top :)

Hey there,

Glycoproteins act as a recognition site for chemicals such as hormones. They are the parts on the protein which look like a mini tree with branches! :)

Hope that helps you with your question!
