O-Glycan Profiling Service

O-linked glycosylation is a post-translational event where O-linked glycans attach to a polypeptide mainly through a glycosidic bond between the terminal monosaccharide residue and the OH group of serine or threonine residues. O-linked glycosylation may also occur through tyrosine, hydroxylysine, or hydroxyproline residues. O-glycans plays an important role in many biological processes: (i) protect the epithelial cells at the apical membrane from hostile environmental factors; (ii) block infection by pathogens; (iii) participate in cellular signaling events and so on. Unlike N-glycans, there is no known O-linked amino acid consensus sequence yet. The O-glycans are structurally diverse and they can be divided into several structural families with relatively heterogeneous core structures.

Overview of O-Glycan Profiling Service

More than 60% of therapeutic proteins are post-translationally modified following biosynthesis by the addition of N-glycans or O-glycans. It is necessary to characterize glycans in efficient manufacturing processes so as to maintain continued biotherapeutics glycosylation patterns. At Creative Proteomics, we provide o-glycan profiling service to support the development and commercialization of therapeutic proteins. The workflow of our O-glycan profiling analysis is as follows.
