Assay Procedure

  1. Prepare reaction mixture by combining a sample glycoprotein (ideally between 1 to 10 µg), 0.5 µg of a recombinant sialyltransferase, 0.1 µg of recombinant neuraminidase, 1 nmol CMP-C9-Biotin-Sialic Acid, in the Assay Buffer with the final volume of 25 μL.
  2. Prepare negative controls by combining a sample glycoprotein (ideally between 1 to 10 µg), 0.1 µg of recombinant neuraminidase, 1 nmol CMP-C9-Biotin-Sialic Acid in the Assay Buffer with the final volume of 25 μL.
  3. Incubate reactions and controls at 37 °C for 30 minutes.
  4. Separate the reactions and controls by SDS-PAGE.
  5. Blot the gel to a nitrocellulose membrane.
  6. Block the blot with 10% fat-free milk for 5 minutes.
  7. Thoroughly wash the membrane with TBST buffer by changing buffer three times for a total of 30 minutes.
  8. Incubate the blot with 25 ng/mL Streptavidin-HRP in 30 mL TBST buffer for 30 minutes.
  9. Thoroughly wash the membrane with TBST buffer by changing buffer three times for a total of 45 minutes.
  10. Detect with commercial ECL (Enhanced Chemiluminescence) reagents.
