Glycoprofiling Purified Glycoproteins Using Surface Plasmon Resonance

The carbohydrate part of glycoproteins can define several of their biological properties, including the clearance rate, immunogenicity, thermal stability, solubility, the specific activity, and conformation (1). Often, small differences in the composition of the sugar side chains of a glycoprotein can affect the biological properties (2). Characterization of oligosaccharide structures on glycoproteins is essential for glycoprotein therapeutic products, because inflammatory and systemic responses may arise if glycosylation of the product is different from that of the native substance.
