Glycosylation plays a role in a wide variety of biological processes including bacterial pathogenesis, tumor cell metastasis and inflammation. Despite the importance of carbohydrates, few techniques exist for the rapid and systematic evaluation of protein glycosylation. This paper describes a lectin microarray for the rapid analysis of protein glycopatterns (see scheme).
