Sulfation of glycoprotein

Mon Jan 29 00:55:22 EST 1996

Dear Dr. Spagnol:

I recently finished a project for the analysis of glycoforms on a recombinant 
lysosomal enzyme, alph-L-iduronidase, using lectin binding, HPLC, and MALDI-
TOFMS (mass spectrometry) prior to and after endo-glycosidase digestion.  With
this protocol, I was able to detect phosphate on high mannose (Man-6-P).  The 
phosphate was confirmed by alkaline phosphatase cleavage.  I believe SO4, which
happens to have identical mass as PO4 (~80 Da), could also be identified this 
way (as well as any other methods available).
