GalNAc Transferases: All transfer GalNAc to Ser/Thr to initiate mucin-type glycosylation
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 1/GALNT1|
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 10/GALNT10|
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 11/GALNT11|
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 13/GALNT13|
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 3/GALNT3|
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 4/GALNT4|
|Polypeptide GalNAc Transferase 7/GALNT7|
Glycans are removed by enzyme treatment. Specific transferases can be used to incorporate Azido-GalNAc at suitable open positions. The incorporation Azido-GalNAc can then be detected using Biotinylated Alkyne in a click chemistry reaction.
Labeling Asialofetuin with GALNT2.
In each reaction, 5 µg of Asialofetuin (Sigma Aldrich), 0.5 nmol of UDP-Azido-GlcNAc, 1 µg rhGALNT2 and 1 µg of rE. faecalis O-Glycosidase was mixed in 50 µL of 25 mM HEPES supplemented with 10 mM of MnCl2 and 150 mM NaCl at pH 7.5. The reactions were incubated at 37°C for 60 minutes. The reactions were then conjugated, at room temperature for 30 minutes, with 1.0 nmol of Biotinylated Alkyne in the presence of 100 nmol of Ascorbic Acid and 5 nmol of CuCl2 for a final volume of 60 µL. The reactions were then separated with 12% SDS-PAGE and blotted to a nitrocellulose paper and detected with Streptavidin-HRP.
