Carbohydrate sequence and anomeric configurations determination
Strategy dedicated to the determination of the structures of the W-glycans of plant glycoproteins. This strategy can be applied to a purified glycoprotein or a mixture of glycoproteins. Reduced and carboxamidomethylated glycoproteins are submitted to a proteolytic digestion to generate small peptides and gly-copeptides before PNGase A digestion. PNGase A released glycans are separated from peptides using a Sep-Pak C18 cartridge and desalted on nonporous graphi-tized carbon solid-phase extraction cartridge, PNGase A-released W-glycans are then characterized by MALDI-MS before and after on-plate sequential exoglycosidase digestions. Their methylated derivatives are also characterized by MALDI-MS before and after sequential exoglycosidase digestions and by linkage analysis. Structural assignments are based on molecular weight, susceptibility to exoglycosidase digestions, and linkage data.
