Analysis of Interactions Between Carbohydrates and Proteins Using Capillary Affinity Electrophoresis
Glycosylation is one of the most important post-translational events for proteins, and plays important roles for expression of various biological events such as cell-cell interaction. However, it should be noticed that glycans attached to the protein are not a primary gene product but the product from the biosynthesis by combination of various glycosyltransferases, glycosidases, nucleotide donors, and nucleotide transporters. Thus, the glycans which attach to the core protein are highly heterogeneous in abundance, structure, and linkage position.
