Sample preparation

1.Sample Origin

General information:
O-glycans released from soluble and insoluble pig mucins isolateed from healthy and Brachyspira hyodysenteriae infected colon tissues

Growth/harvest conditions for recombinantly produced material:

Treatments and/or storage conditions:
Soluble and insoluble mucins were purified from pig colon tissues using isopycnic gradient centrifugation. O-glycans were released chemically using reductive beta-elimination

For commercial material, vendor and applicable item information:

Generation of chemically derived material:

2. Sample Processing

Purification steps:
Released O-glycans were desalted using strong cation exchange Dowex resin packed as a microcolumn in top of hydrphobic C18 material

2. Defined Sample

Sample name:
O-linked oligosaccharides
