Glycoprotein Detection Kit

Sigma′s colorimetric glycoprotein detection kit enables convenient, reliable detection of the sugar moieties of glycoproteins in PAGE gels or Western blotting membranes. Based on a modification of Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) methods, the Glycoprotein Detection Kit identifies glycoproteins with magenta bands on a light pink or colorless background. The kit contains reagents sufficient to stain ten mini-gels (10 × 10 cm) or ten membranes of the same dimensions and detects as little as 25 to 100 ng of carbohydrate, depending on the nature and degree of glycosylation.
