Carbohydrate Recognition Specificity of Trans-sialidase Lectin Domain from Trypanosoma congolense
100 μg TconTS1 and TconTS2 expressed in CHO-Lec1 cells were incubated without (-) or with (+) 4000 units EndoHf glycosidase under native (-) or denaturing (+) conditions as described under Methods. A: 10% SDS polyacrylamide gel with subsequent Coomassie Brilliant Blue staining. B: Western blot of deglycosylated TconTS, detected using anti-Strep-tag mAb. C: Concanavalin A (ConA) lectin blot using 2 μg/mL biotinylated ConA and an peroxidase conjugated avidin-biotin system (ABC-Kit, VECTASTAIN) for detection. 50 ng TconTS sample were used for ConA and Western blot analysis and 800 ng for SDS-PAGE.
