Dear Glycoscientists,

I am looking for a simple, sensitive and reproducable microplate 
assay for free or bound hexoses and/or sialic acids. I am trying to 
quantify the amount of carbohydrate being removed from a glycoprotein 
with endo- and exo- glycosidase enzymes over time. References would 
be much appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,

In Genentech, this is one of the aspect we are looking into. We are
presenting a poster on this subject at the Boston Meeting on
Glycobiology during the end of this month. If you have access to
interenet, you can look into our abstract. I would like to invite
Glycofolks to comment on this.
