About this book


This volume discusses detailed protocols for the analysis of glycosylation at the level of free glycans and glycopeptides. This book covers topics such as the importance of glycans in eukaryotic life (with a focus on mammals and particularly humans); recent technologies that allow the characterization of larger sets of samples; and method repeatability and robustness, as well as higher throughput with respect to sample preparation, measurement and data analysis. The chapters spans a wide range of techniques, including the analysis of fluorescently labeled glycans with HPLC, LC-MS analysis of glycopeptides both for glycosylation profiling and for in-depth tandem mass spectrometric analysis of protein glycosylation, and the analysis of glycans with fluorescent labeling, capillary electrophoresis in conjunction with laser induced fluorescence detection. The chapters also detail specific samples types including brain tissues, N-glycans from in-vitro cell cultures, milk oligosaccharides, invertebrate and protest N-glycans, as well as plant glycans. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introduction to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Practical and thorough, High-Throughput Glycomics and Glycoproteomics: Methods and Protocols is an essential reference for researchers planning to enter this rapidly evolving field.
