Advantages

  • Engineered glycan-binding proteins capable of recognizing a wide range of carbohydrates, regardless of size or composition, with greater specificity and affinity than antibodies and lectins
  • Capable of detecting single-atom differences between carbohydrates, and not sterically hindered due to their small sizes
  • Multiple glycan-binding proteins can be linked to specifically recognize and manipulate very complex oligosaccharide structures
  • Can be easily functionalized for a broad range of biological techniques, including immunostaining and purification of glycosylated biomolecules and cells.
