Despite recent advances in our understanding of the significance of the protein glycosylation, the throughput of protein glycosylation analysis is still too low to be applied to the exhaustive glycoproteomic analysis. Aiming to elucidate the N-glycosylation of murine epidermis and dermis glycoproteins, here we used a novel approach for focused proteomics. A(More)
Correlations of disease phenotypes with glycosylation changes have been analysed intensively in the tumor biology field. Glycoforms potentially associated with carcinogenesis, tumor progression and cancer metastasis have been identified. In cancer therapy, drug resistance is a severe problem, reducing therapeutic effect of drugs and adding to patient(More)
Two isomeric pairs of 2-aminopyridine (PA)-derivatized fucosylated and non-fucosylated oligosaccharides (complex-type N-glycans of IgG) were analyzed using liquid chromatography/ion trap mass spectrometry (LC/ITMS) with a sonic spray ionization source and by varying the collision-induced dissociation voltage. Reproducibility of MS(n) (n = 2) spectra(More)
Glycosylation has an important role in regulating properties of proteins and is associated with many diseases. To examine the alteration of serum N-glycans in type 2 diabetes, we used the db/db mouse model. Serum N-glycans were fluorescence labeled and applied to HPLC. There were reproducible differences in N-glycan profiles between the db/db mouse model(More)
Neutral and acidic (sialylated) 2-aminopyridine-derivatized (PA) oligosaccharides were analyzed by using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography/ion trap mass spectrometry (RP-HPLC/IT MS) with a sonic spray ionization (SSI) source. Under the RP-HPLC separation using a buffer of 1 mM ammonium acetate (pH4.3) at a flow rate of 0.2 mL/min, both(More)
Capillary zwitterionic-type hydrophilic interaction chromatography (ZIC-HILIC)/ESI-MS has been applied to the Glu-C digest of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. N-Glycopeptides (105) and O-glycopeptides (8) were detected in a single run of the capillary ZIC-HILIC/ESI-MS analysis. Among them,(More)
Altered N-glycosylation occurs in many diseases. In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), for example, reduction in galactose residues in IgG and an increase in fucose residues in alpha1-acid glycoprotein have been observed. To further analyse N-glycans in disease, we show N-glycan profiling from whole serum employing reversed phase high performance liquid(More)
Mass spectrometric analyses of various N-glycans binding to proteins and peptides are highly desirable for elucidating their biological roles. An approach based on collision-induced dissociation (CID) MS(n) spectra acquired by electrospray ionization linear ion trap time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ESI-LIT-TOFMS) in the positive- and negative-ion modes has(More)
Expression of the tumor suppressor p16(INK4a) after stable transfection can restore the susceptibility of epithelial tumor cells to anoikis. This property is linked to increases in the expression and cell-surface presence of the fibronectin receptor. Considering its glycan chains as pivotal signals, we assumed an effect of p16(INK4a) on glycosylation. To(More)
Isomeric oligosaccharides and isomeric glycopeptides are sometimes difficult to separate on normal-phase (NP) and reversed-phase (RP) columns. A zwitterionic type of hydrophilic-interaction chromatography column with sulfobetaine groups (called ZIC-HILIC column) was first applied to the separation of 2-aminopyridine derivatized (PA) N-glycans and tryptic(More)
