The Challenges of Protein Glycosylation Analysis

Glycosylation is a complex post-translational modification that is critical for regulating the functions of diverse proteins. Glycoproteomics is the subfield of proteomics that focuses on protein glycosylation. Glycans pose a challenge to proteomic analysis because the mass of the glycopeptide varies according to the composition of the glycan, which is naturally heterogeneous. Glycopeptides are usually separated together with a large number of non-glycosylated peptides. Due to such high complexity, glycopeptide ions are either low in content or heavily suppressed, thus requiring the identification of specific analytical techniques.

The Methods of Glycoproteomics Analysis

Although no single method can solve all the problems in glycoproteomics, data independent acquisition-based MS (DIA-MS) has proven to be powerful and attractive in various experimental setups and is now starting to be applied in the field of glycoproteomics.

Mass spectrometry (MS) proteomics is an analytical technique to identify and quantitate peptides or proteins and their post-translational modifications (PTMs). In MS proteomics, the peptides or proteins are fragmented and ionized, and ions are separated according to their mass-to-charge (m/z) ratio and detected with appropriate equipment. By comparing the observed m/z values for each ion detected with predicted m/z values calculated from known biological information, the peptides and proteins in the sample can be identified.

DIA is currently an emerging approach in bottom-up proteomics that enables deep proteome coverage and accurate label-free quantification. DIA-based MS can solve some of the major problems of DDA-based glycopeptidomics and significantly increase the number of identified glycopeptides, especially in cases where glycopeptides represent only a small fraction of the total peptide pool. DIA-based methods also allow more efficient estimation of glycosylation site occupancy and heterogeneity. The benefits of DIA, including a broader dynamic range, improved reproducibility, and accurate quantification, provide unique support for effective PTM analysis.
