100 glycan microarray service provided by CD BioGlyco helps researchers determine the binding partners for 100 diverse glycans in serum, proteins, plasma, cell cultures, cell/tissue lysates, or other potential biological samples, which represent the range of glycosylations found on cell membranes. We look forward to providing you with efficient scientific services in your research related to glycan microarray analysis.
Glycocalyx is an extracellular polymer coating surrounding many eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, consisting of glycolipids, glycoproteins, proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, which play important roles in cell signaling, viral infection and immune processes. Therefore, the clarification of glycan-associated biomolecular interactions and their consequences is critical for fundamental biology research and biomedical applications. However, there are currently very limited assay tools available for glycobiology research.
CD BioGlyco has worked to develop glycan microarrays for the rapid analysis of glycan-related recognition events. Because they contain numerous glycans immobilized in a compact and ordered manner on a solid surface, glycan microarrays allow for multiple parallel analyses of glycan-protein interaction using only a small number of glycan samples. Microarray technology is now being used as an effective tool to elucidate the role of glycans and glycan-binding proteins in biological systems.
