Charge Profiling of Negatively Charged Glycans in Biotherapeutics

Ludger Ltd

Ludgers tools allow you to monitor sialylated, phosphorylated or sulphated glycans

Negatively charged glycans (sialic acids, sulphated or phosphorylated sugars) often play a critical role in the function of a glycoprotein. Sialic acids increase the serum half-life of glycoproteins by protecting them from degradation by the asialoglycoprotein receptor; sulphated glycans are involved in cell adhesion; and Mannose-6-Phosphate is a key targeting signal for transport of glycoproteins to lysosomes and is present in therapeutic enzymes (enzyme replacement therapies) developed for treatment of lysosomal storage diseases.

The LudgerSep-C3 column (Cat # LS-C3-7.5x75) is a weak anionic exchange (WAX) HPLC column that enables you analyse negatively charged sialylated, phosphorylated and sulphated glycans. This technique is also known as ‘charge profiling’. An example of the information that can be provided is the relative amounts of sialylation (1, 2, 3 or 4 sialic acids) on your glycoprotein which is important to know when analysing a highly sialylated protein such as erythropoietin (EPO).

Although sialylated and sulphated glycans can be separated by anion exchange at a low pH of 4.4, the phosphorylated sugars would not be fully charged and there would be multiple species in solution. In order to have one buffer which is suitable for separation of all anionic glycans (sialic acids, phosphorylated and sulphated sugars) Ludger recommends the use of pH9 ammonium formate buffer. The LudgerSep C buffer is a pH 9 ammonium formate buffer concentrate (Cat# LS-C-BUFFX4) which can easily be diluted with water and acetonitrile then used directly as a solvent for the LudgerSep C3 column.

York Health Economics Consortium offers an updated training event

Health economics evidence is a key element in much health services research and particularly in health technology assessments, including submissions for NICE single technology appraisals. Identifying economic evidence to inform submissions involves searches in a range of databases and uses a variety of strategies.

Quality of Steel

Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.

Steel quality is the summation of how well a steel meets its specified chemistry, the cleanliness of the steel or degree to which it is free of impurities or inclusion, homogeneity of the microstructure, grain/carbide size and in some instances if it meets the mechanical requirements for that particular steel. In the design and manufacture of tablet compression tooling, nothing is more important than the quality of the materials being used. The best manufacturing principals maintaining the tightest tolerances will result in tool failure if the initial material quality is poor. Material quality is the fundamental building block upon which all successive value added steps are laid. The majority of all tablet compression tooling is produced from steel and steel quality is the subject of this article.
