High-Throughput Screening for Inhibitors of Sialyl- and Fucosyltransferases

Importance of Developing the Inhibitors of Sialyl- And Fucosyltransferases

Fucosyltransferases are a class of enzymes that catalyze the transfer reaction between algal sugar molecules. They transfer algal glycosyl groups to substrate molecules in the glycosyl assimilation pathway, provide a spatial molecular vacancy for polysaccharide synthesis, and thus promote the synthesis of polysaccharides. It is involved in many biological activities, such as the modification of cell surface component molecules, involvement in signaling processes, and interactions between pathogens and host cells. Sialyltransferase is an important enzyme involved in the synthesis and regulation of the endogenous plant hormone salicylic acid (SA), and also in the transfer reaction of salicylic acid with coenzyme A to produce acetylsalicylic acid, which is a commonly used analgesic and antipyretic. Therefore, by studying their inhibitors, it is possible to investigate their role in the development and progression of related diseases, which has important biological implications for drug development.

High-Throughput Screening (HTS) of Inhibitors of Sialyl- and Fucosyltransferases at CD BioGlyco

CD BioGlyco utilizes the expertise and advanced equipment to efficiently evaluate compounds to determine the potential for application in areas such as drug discovery and development. We are committed to providing the most accurate, reliable, and rapid HTS services for Inhibitors of sialyl- and fucosyltransferases. Our HTS services handle large volumes of data and utilize state-of-the-art technologies and algorithms to efficiently filter and classify experimental data. The HTS services we offer are diverse and not limited to the following.:

  • HTS of inhibitors of sialyl- and fucosyltransferases based on fluorescence-polarization (FP)-based assays
    This is performed in microtiter plates, which greatly reduces experimental costs and sample consumption. It allows efficient screening of a large number of compounds and increases the likelihood of discovering new inhibitors.
  • HTS of inhibitors of sialyl- and fucosyltransferases based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR)
    The dynamic interactions of biomolecules can be monitored and evaluated in real-time with high selectivity, and sensitivity.
