Abstract

The antibody-lectin sandwich arrays (ALSA) is a powerful new tool for glycoproteomics research. ALSA enables precise measurements of the glycosylation states of multiple proteins captured directly from biological samples. The platform can be used in a high-throughput mode with low sample consumption, making it well suited to biomarker research exploring glycan alterations on specific proteins. This article provides detailed descriptions of the use of ALSA, with a particular focus on biomarker research. The preparation and selection of antibodies and lectins, the preparation and use of the arrays and samples, and special considerations for using the platform for biomarker research are covered.
