This quantity discusses particular protocols for the research of glycosylation on the point of loose glycans and glycopeptides. The ebook covers themes akin to the significance of glycans in eukaryotic lifestyles (with a spotlight on mammals and especially humans); fresh applied sciences that let the characterization of bigger units of samples; and process repeatability and robustness, in addition to greater all through with recognize to pattern guidance, size and information research.

Example text

Enzyme is added to give a final concentration of 50 pg protein/ml, and after 10 min at 30 "C the fall in absorbance at 420 nm is measured. In detail, the actual assay proceeds in the following stages: 1. The stock solutions are prepared. (A stock solution is any solution that is used to prepare a reagent. ) 2. The reagents are prepared by dilution of the stock solutions. The convenient stock solutions in this case are 1 M potassium phosphate¶ 50 mM lactate and 10 mM ferricyanide. 75 mg protein/ml.

For example, changes in the heat content of the reaction mixture may be exploited, as in the calorimetric measurements of biological oxidations by Estabrook and Gutfreund (1960). Magnetic measurements may be used, for example in a study of myoglobin by Brill et al. (1960). There have been many studies on enzymes using NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance); Shulman (1962) summarized the use of electron and nuclear spin resonance in biology and gave some examples of its application to enzymology (see also Beinert and Palmer 1965).

As an example, Opher et al. (1966) studied the isoenzymes of serum lactate dehydrogenase by strip electrophoresis. They incubated the strips SEMI-AUTOMATIC METHODS 29 with substrate and tetra-nitro-blue tetrazolium. This was reduced to a purple formazan by the action of the enzyme, and the amount of reduction was proportional to enzyme concentration. Quantitative determination of the coloured area was carried out with a densitometer; the assay may therefore be regarded as a semi-automated procedure.
