Sialic Acid Products

Sialic Acids (a family of derivatives of neuraminic acid) are usually found as terminal structures of both N-linked and O-linked glycans.

Being located at the terminal position of glycans, sialic acids are a likely point of contact for many glycoprotein interactions. They are also important for the stability and 3D conformation of glycoproteins and are involved in many biological interactions:

• Sialyation of IgG reduces ADCC and increases anti-inflammatory activity
• Sialic acids increase the serum half-life of glycoproteins by preventing uptake by the liver’s asialoglycoprotein receptor
• NGNA(Neu5Gc), a glycan not found in humans, can illicit an immune response and lead to increased neutralization of biopharmaceuticals.
• Cell line choice can greatly influence the type of neuraminic acids present on a biopharmaceutical, for example a large portion of the sialic acids on mouse IgG are often NGNA.

recombinant from A. ureafaciens

α (2-3,6,8,9) Neuraminidase cleaves all non-reducing terminal sialic acid residues from complex carbohydrates and glycoproteins. The relative cleavage rates for different linkages are:
α(2-6) > α(2-3) > α(2-8), α(2-9).

The LudgerTag DMB Sialic Acid Labeling Kit has been developed for the qualitative analysis of sialic acids
The kit contains reagents for the release of sialic acids from glycoproteins. Released sialic acids are conjugated with DMB dye by an amination-cyclisation reaction.

The kit contains reagents and materials for up to 22 samples including the sialic acid reference panel, and the N-acetyl neuraminic acid and N-glycolyl neuraminic acid standards.
