2:00 PM Eastern Time ( 11:00 AM PT)

Glycans are carbohydrate polymers that attach to other biomolecules such as protein, lipids and RNA, facilitating myriad biological interactions and processes critical to human health and disease. Plant lectins bind to glycans with specificities similar to antibody-antigen interactions and have been instrumental in dissecting and understanding the world of glycosylation.

In this webinar brought to you by Vector Laboratories, August Estabrook will discuss how to identify glycoconjugates on different cell surfaces using plant lectins and immunofluorescence, unraveling cellular mysteries.

Topics to be covered

  • Lectin selection to evaluate major glycan motifs
  • Detecting glycan expression with Glysite™ Scout Glycan Screening kits
  • Optimizing glycan detection protocols
  • Glycan screening applications
