Rapid Sample Preparation Methodology for Plant N-Glycan Analysis Using Acid-Stable PNGase H+
The quantification of potentially allergenic carbohydrate motifs of plant and insect glycoproteins is increasingly important in biotechnological and agricultural applications as a result of the use of insect cell-based expression systems and transgenic plants. The need to analyze N-glycan moieties in a highly parallel manner inspired us to develop a quick N-glycan analysis method based on a recently discovered bacterial protein N-glycanase (PNGase H+). In contrast to the traditionally used PNGase A, which is isolated from almond seeds and only releases N-glycans from proteolytically derived glycopeptides, the herein implemented PNGase H+ allows for the release of N-glycans directly from the glycoprotein samples. Because PNGase H+ is highly active under acidic conditions, the consecutive fluorescence labeling step using 2-aminobenzamide (2AB) can be directly performed in the same mixture used for the enzymatic deglycosylation step. All sample handling and incubation steps can be performed in less than 4 h ...

We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
