The human genome encodes 30,000 to 40,000 proteins, and a major challenge is to understand how posttranslational events, such as glycosylation, affect the activities and functions of these proteins in health and disease. Glycosylated proteins are ubiquitous components of extracellular matrices and cellular surfaces where their oligosaccharide moieties are implicated in a wide range of cell-cell and cell-matrix recognition events. The power of ultrahigh-sensitivity mass spectrometric strategies… 
Bacterial glycoproteomics.
TLDR
The capabilities of high-sensitivity mass spectrometry for carbohydrate structure determination of bacterial Glycoproteins and the emergence of glycoproteomic strategies that have evolved from proteomics and genomics for the functional analysis of bacterial glycosylation are highlighted.
Glycopeptide analysis by mass spectrometry.
TLDR
This review focuses on the mass spectral analysis of glycopeptides, after subjecting the glycoprotein to proteolysis, which is useful in characterizing glycan heterogeneity and correlating glycan compositions to their attachment sites on the protein.
Conformation of Glycopeptides and Glycoproteins
Glycosylation is the most frequent post-translational modification found in proteins. Glycoproteins are involved in a highly diverse spectrum of biological functions, ranging from protein folding and
Protein Glycosylation Investigated by Mass Spectrometry: An Overview
TLDR
The tricks and pre-treatments of samples are discussed as a crucial step prodromal to the MS analysis to improve the glycan ionization efficiency and contribute to the elucidation of biological mechanisms.
Mass spectrometric analysis of glycans in elucidating the pathogenesis of CDG type IIx
TLDR
This methodology can rapidly pinpoint the defective step(s) in the processing pathway of N-linked glycans, thereby focusing the biochemical analyses that need to be performed to define the genetic basis of these diseases.
Structure Determination of Glycans by Analyzing Tandem Mass Spectra
A major goal in molecular biology is to understand protein function. It is widely accepted that post-translational modifications influence protein function. One of the most abundant
The use of mass spectrometry for the proteomic analysis of glycosylation
TLDR
This review describes methodologies based on MS for detailed characterization of glycoconjugates in complex biological samples at the sensitivity required for proteomic work.
Complexities and Algorithms for Glycan Sequencing Using Tandem Mass Spectrometry
TLDR
It is shown in this paper that glycan de novo sequencing is NP-hard, and a heuristic algorithm is provided and a software program is developed to solve the problem in practical cases.
Tandem Mass Spectrometry and Glycoproteins
Glycoproteins and glycopeptides are organic compounds that are composed of both polypeptide and carbohydrate chains bonded together. For many years glycoproteins and glycopeptides have been a subject

TLDR
The abundance of the Lewisx and sialyl Lewisx epitopes on murine PrP sc may indicate a role for these structures in the normal function of PrPC or the pathophysiology of PrPSc.
Protein sequencing by tandem mass spectrometry.
TLDR
Methodology for determining amino acid sequences of proteins by tandem mass spectrometry, and Interpretation of collision-activated dissociation mass spectra is described, results are presented from a study of soluble peptides produced by treatment of apolipoprotein B with cyanogen bromide and trypsin.

TLDR
It is reported that normal and pathogenic prion proteins from Syrian hamsters contain the same set of at least 52 bi-, tri-, and tetraantennary N-linked oligosaccharides, although the relative proportions of individual glycans differ, which conservation of structure suggests that the conversion of PrP(C) into PrP (Sc) is not confined to a subset of PrPs that contain specific sugars.
High Density O-Glycosylation on Tandem Repeat Peptide from Secretory MUC1 of T47D Breast Cancer Cells*
TLDR
In addition to a modification by glycosylation, the immunodominant DTR motif on T47D-MUC1 is altered by amino acid replacements (PAPGSTAPAAHGVTSAPESR), which were revealed in about 50% of PAP20 peptides, which imply that the conserved tandem repeat domain of MUC 1 is polymorphic with respect to the peptide sequence.
Structural Studies of N-Glycans of Filarial Parasites
TLDR
It is revealed that surprisingly, filarial nematodes also contain N-linked glycans, the antennae of which are composed of chito-oligomers, the first report of such structures in a eukaryotic glycoprotein.

TLDR
It is shown that mutation of a single gene, encoding alpha-mannosidase II, results in a systemic autoimmune disease similar to human systemic lupus erythematosus, due to an incomplete overlap of two conjoined pathways in complex-type N-glycan production.
Structural Analysis of the Oligosaccharides Derived from Glycodelin, a Human Glycoprotein with Potent Immunosuppressive and Contraceptive Activities (*)
TLDR
The potent inhibitory effect of glycodelin on initial human sperm-zona pellucida binding is consistent with previous suggestion that this cell adhesion event requires a selectin-like adhesion process and raises the possibility that a convergence between immune and gamete recognition processes may have occurred in the types of carbohydrate ligands recognized in the human.
