The cancer cells release an endoglycosidase (N-acetylgalactosaminidase) that inactivates Gc-MAF.
In contrast, O-glycans are built on different protein glycan linkages and have extremely diverse structures; in addition, there is no endoglycosidase available for the release of intact O-glycans.
A general endoglycosidase for release of all O-glycans remains to be discovered.
The construct FH18-20 was found to run as a doublet of bands in SDS-PAGE, and the upper band was verified as a glycosylated form by treatment with endoglycosidase H (Sigma; data not shown).
NEURAMINIDASE, ENDOGLYCOSIDASE F2, AND PEPTIDE: N-GLYCOSIDASE F TREATMENTS
The glycoproteins were treated with neuraminidase from Clostridium perfringens (Roche Molecular Biochemicals), endoglycosidase F2, and peptide:N-glycosidase F from Flavobacterium meningosepticum (Roche Molecular Biochemicals) as described previously (10, 15).
After treatment of normal serum transferrin with neuraminidase, endoglycosidase F2 (which removes all the carbohydrates except for the linked N-acetylglucosamine) or peptide:N-glycosidase F, SZ-350 antibody recognized only the band generated by peptide:N-glycosidase F (Fig.
