Glycosylation of proteins is a dynamic post-translational modification commonly found in eukaryotes, changing with development, differentiation, and disease state. Identification of glycoproteins is important for completely characterizing the population of proteins found at a given point in time. This unit contains protocols for identifying glycoproteins in general using a fluorescence based periodate/Schiff base method and those containing specific carbohydrates using a lectin-based fluorescent method.
