Enzymatic Deglycosylation Kit [For Glycan Release] (CAT#: CB-P259-K) Datasheet

Product Type
The appropriate use of a single glycosidase can determine sialylation (using only sialidase) and N-linked glycans (using only PNGase F) and O-linked glycans (using sialidase, β-galactosidase, O- The specific existence of glycosidase and glucosidase).
The Enzymatic CarboRelease Kit will deglycosylate glycoproteins, removing all N-linked oligosaccharides and many O-linked oligosaccharides from glycoproteins. N-links (Asparganine-linked) are removed using the enzyme PNGase F. In addition, all Serine or Threonine linked (O-linked) Gal-(β1-3)-GalNAc-(α1) and all sialic acid substituted Gal-(β1-3)-GalNAc-(α1) will be removed using the combination of Sialidase and O-Glycosidase. The addition of β-Galactosidase and Glucosaminidase will assist in the deglycosylation of larger O-link structures.

Kit Capacity:
The quantity of enzymes recommended in the protocols is sufficient to deglycosylate approximately 100 µg of an average glycoprotein in the time given. PNGase F cleavage is generally the rate limiting reaction due to the slow removal of some sterically hindered N- linked residues, even when the glycoprotein is denatured. Since all of the enzymes retain activity under reaction conditions for several days, a much larger quantity of glycoprotein may be deglycosylated if incubation is extended. Conversely, there is no need to use the recommended amounts of enzymes if quantities much less than 100 µg of glycoprotein are being cleaved. The enzymes can be diluted into 1X Reaction Buffer. They will remain stable in diluted form at 4°C.

Bovine Fetuin Control Protein:
Bovine Fetuin contains sialylated N- and O- linked oligosaccharides.
NOTE: Commercial preparations of Fetuin contain proteases which will eventually degrade the protein. The Fetuin Control has been heat treated at 90°C for 10 minutes to inactivate the proteases. The Fetuin solution can be stored at 4°C.
This kit includes the enzymes and buffers required to deglycosylate glycoproteins, removing all N-linked oligosaccharides and many O-linked sugars.

Handling Advice
Denaturing Protocol:
1. Dissolve 100 µg or less of a glycoprotein in 30 µL deionized water in an Eppendorf tube.
2. Add 10 µL 5X Reaction Buffer and 2.5 µL Denaturation Solution. Mix gently.
3. Heat at 100°C for 5 minutes.
NOTE: Some proteins may precipitate when heated with SDS. In this event, omit the heat treatment and increase the incubation time to 24 hours after adding enzymes.
4. Cool to room temperature. Add 2.5 µL Triton X-100 solution. Mix gently.
NOTE: Failure to add Triton X-100 may result in the reduction of activity of some enzymes.
5. Add 1 µL each of each enzyme.
6. Incubate for 3 hours at 37°C.
7. Analyze by method of choice.

Alternatively, the enzymes may be added individually or sequentially in order to determine what types of oligosaccharides are present on the glycoprotein.

Non-denaturing Protocol:
1. Dissolve 100 µg or less of a glycoprotein in 35 µL deionized water in an Eppendorf tube.
2. Add 10 µL 5X Reaction Buffer.
3. Add 1 µL of each enzyme.
4. Incubate for 1-5 days at 37°C.

An aliquot should be deglycosylated using the denaturing protocol to provide a gel standard for the fully deglycosylated protein. The position of the native protein can then be compared with this standard to judge the extent of deglycosylation.
Store enzyme at 4°C.
Shelf Life
Stability: Stable at least 12 months when stored properly. Several days exposure to ambient tempertures will not reduce activity.
