The carbohydrate components of combined alpha-subunits of urinary hCG and human pituitary LH (hLH), FSH (hFSH), and TSH (hTSH), each derived from the intact hormone, were studied by direct sugar analysis and methylation analysis. The methods provide a complete survey of the structural elements contained in the complex sugars associated with these glycoproteins, but do not establish the sugar sequences or anomeric configurations of glycosidic bonds. By analogy to N-linked oligosaccharides that… CONTINUE READING
