Another new paper on glycan characterisation from Eyers team

In an exciting advance to our earlier work using ion mobility-mass spectrometry for glycan characterisation Claire and colleagues have published an article in Analytical Chemistry on the application of IM-MS and IR spectroscopy for 'Bottom up elucidation of glycosidic bond stereochemistry' [More...]

New paper on glycan arrays from Eyers team

Claire Eyers, Jerry Turnbull and colleagues in the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology have recently published a paper in Analytical Chemistry describing a ‘Label-Free Discovery Array Platform for the Characterisation of Glycan Binding Proteins and Glycoproteins’. Methods to define carbohydrate-protein interactions are essential to understand the central biological roles of these complex biomolecules. [More...]
