O-Glycosylation Site Occupation Analysis

O-linked glycans are characterized as smaller but highly diverse branched carbohydrates molecules rather than N-linked glycans and usually attach to proteins at any supposed field, therefore, it lead to a complexity of analysis and is difficult to pinpoint these exact locations of O-glycosylation.

We can either carry out a summary analysis of all glycosylation sites or analysis of site-specific glycosylation.

The general steps for O-glycosylation site occupation analysis inclueds proteolytical digestion of glycoprotein, a precipitation step, glycopeptide enrichment and fractionation via hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography. Enriched O-glycopeptide fractions were analyzed by mass spectrometric analysis using reversed-phase liquid chromatography coupled ion trap mass spectrometer.

Other label free approaches based on the signal intensity of glycopeptide/peptide ions for analysis of O-glycosylation site occupation is as well available.
