SGNP（Sugar chain - immobilized Gold Nano-Particle） is a gold nano particles immobilized with structurally defined sugar chains, showing red-purple color (λmax = ca. 530 nm). SGNP is a very convenient tool for evaluating sugar chain – protein interaction, since the interaction can be detected visually, and can be quantified from the change of OD at 530 nm. There are several applications as follows:
- Aggregation of protein
- Inhibition assay
- Isolation and purification of lectin from a crude extract
Application#2: Inhibition assay
* Independent on the valency of sugar-binding proteins.
