Cy5-Fuc Labeled M1N1f as a substrate for recombinant MGAT2 assay. Cy5-Fuc labeled M1N1f (M1N1f) (Catalog # GL301) (0.2 pmol per reaction) was treated by a serial dilution of Recombinant Human N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase2/MGAT2 Protein (Catalog # 10711-GT). The reactions were incubated 30 minutes at 37oC then heat inactivated, and further elongated with Recombinant Human B4GalT1 Protein (Catalog # 3609-GT)  at 37oC for 20 minutes.  Samples were separated on 15% SDS-PAGE and imaged with TCE staining (top panel) and fluorescent imaging (lower panel). Product 2 is visible with 6.25 ng of MGAT2, and its maximal level was achieved at 100 ng of the enzyme. The conversion of M1N1f to M2f by MGAT2 did not generate obvious mobility shift (data not shown). To overcome this issue, the substrate M1N1f and the product M2f were elongated by B4GalT1 to Product 1 and Product 2, respectively, to  create an obvious gel mobility shift.


Store the unopened product at -20 to -70 °C. Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Do not use past expiration date.

Assay Procedure

Sample Assay Protocol for using Cy5-Fuc Labeled M1N1f/M1N1f as substrate for Recombinant Human N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 2/MGAT2 assay

Protocols are guidelines. Parameters need to be optimized by end users. Suggested input of a Cy5-M1N1f in an assay separated on SDS-PAGE is from 0.01-1 pmol.


  • Assay Buffer: 25 mM Tris, 10 mM CaCl2, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Human N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase2/MGAT2 (rhMGAT2) (Catalog # 10711-GT)
  • Cy5-Fuc Labeled M1N1f (M1N1f) (Catalog # GL301)
  • Recombinant Human B4GALT1 (rhB4GALT1) (Catalog # 3609-GT)
  • UDP-Gal
  • UDP-GlcNAc
  • 15% SDS-PAGE
  • 6X gel loading dye
  • A fluorescent imager


  1. Dilute rhMGAT2 to 10 ng/µL in the Assay Buffer.
  2. Create a Reaction Mix #1 by combining 0.02 µM M1N1f and 1.5 mM UDP-GlcNAc in Assay Buffer.
  3. Mix 10 µL of the diluted rhMGAT2 and 10 µL of the Reaction Mix #1 in a centrifuge tube. 
  4. Prepare a negative control by mixing 10 µL of Assay Buffer and 10 µL of Reaction Mix #1 in another centrifuge tube.
  5. Incubate the reaction and control at 37o C for 30 minutes.
  6. Heat tubes to 90o C for 2 minutes, cool on ice, and quickly spin down condensation.
  7. Create Reaction Mix #2 by combining 50 ng/µL rhB4GALT1 and 1.5 mM UDP-Gal in Assay Buffer.
  8. Add 10 µL of Reaction Mix #2 to each tube.
  9. Incubate at 37o C for 20 minutes.
  10. Stop the reactions and controls by adding 6 μL of 6X gel loading dye to each tube.
  11. Load 18 µL each of the above reactions and controls per well on a 15% SDS-PAGE and run down 80% length of the gel.
  12. Visualize the gel using a fluorescent imager for 10 seconds.
