Assay Procedure

  • Assay Buffer: 0.1 M Tris, pH 7.5
  • Denaturing Buffer (10X): 5% SDS, 0.8 M beta -Mercaptoethanol
  • Recombinant F. meningosepticum PNGase F (rFmPNGase) (Catalog # 9109-GH)
  • Ribonuclease B, from bovine pancreas (RNase B) (Sigma, Catalog # R7884), 2.5 mg/mL stock in 25 mM Tris, pH 7.5
  • 10% Triton® X-100 (Amresco, Catalog # M236)
  • Reducing SDS-PAGE Sample Buffer
  • SDS-PAGE or Western Blot
  1. Dilute Denaturing Buffer to 5X in deionized water.
  2. Create a Substrate Mixture containing 0.8 mg/mL RNase B and 1X Denaturing Buffer in deionized water.
  3. Heat Substrate Mixture at 100 °C for 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature and microcentrifuge briefly.
  4. Add 10% Triton® X-100 to a final concentration of 1.67%.
  5. Dilute rFmPNGase F to 0.167 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  6. Combine 15 µL of Substrate Mixture and 15 µL 0.167 ng/µL rFmPNGase F. Include a control containing 15 µL of Substrate Mixture and 15 µL of Assay Buffer.
  7. Incubate reaction mixture at 37 °C for 30 minutes.
  8. Combine equal volumes of incubated reaction mixture and reducing SDS-PAGE sample buffer and boil samples at 100 °C for
    3-5 minutes.
  9. Load 15 µL (2.5 µg RNase B) per lane on a 4-20% SDS-PAGE gel.
  10. Stain gel and analyze for percent deglycosylation using densitometry.
Per Reaction:
  • rFmPNGase F: 2.5 ng
  • RNase B: 10 µg

Background: PNGase F

PNGase F, peptide N-glycosidase F from Flavobacterium meningosepticum, catalyzes the hydrolysis of asparagine-linked high mannose, as well as hybrid and complex oligosaccharides from glycoproteins (1). Unlike glycosidases that hydrolyze glycosidic bonds, PNGase F is an amidase that cleaves the
beta-aspartylglucosamine bond between the innermost GlcNAc of N-glycans and asparagine residues of glycoproteins (2). The enzyme is highly active on various
N-glycans except those with the innermost GlcNAc modified with alpha 1-3-linked core fucose, which is commonly found on plant glycoproteins (3). Cleavage with PNGase F will convert the asparagine residue to an aspartic residue, allowing identification of the glycosylation site by mass spectrometry (4). This purified enzyme is compatible with glycan analysis using mass spectrometry.
