Dr Sharad Purohit, co-investigator and author, said, "Proteins determine cell function and about half the proteins we make are modified by glycans in a continuous and fundamental biochemical process".
8] analyzed the glycan profile of urinary protein and showed that the expression of IgA1 was elevated in IgAN patients with galactose deficiency and that urinary Gd-IgA1 levels were associated with proteinuria.
Colored bars represent glycans that contain [alpha]-2,3 sialic acid (SA) (blue), [alpha]-2,6 SA (red), [alpha]-2,3/[alpha]-2,6 mixed SA (purple), N-glycolyl SA (green), [alpha]-2,8 SA (brown), [beta]-2,6 and 9-O-acetyl SA (yellow), and non-SA (gray).
Under the co-marketing agreement, Waters will combine its existing Glycoworks RapiFluor-MS (RFMS) N-Glycan Kits with an Andrew pipetting robot that will allow laboratories to meet the demands on them for glycan profiling, while improving the accuracy and precision of LC and LC-MS results.
Glycans play a crucial role in modulating various biological processes and their assessment can help determine the susceptibility to diseases and response to treatment.
With the new method, scientists can finally see which types of glycans make up this protective layer, and whether it has any vulnerable holes that make the virus susceptible to attack by immune cells.
For gaining fundamental insight in the structure-function relation of glycans of a glycoprotein and of the glycoprotein as a molecular entity, structural information is needed.
