Abstract

Protein glycosylation has significant effects on the structure and function of proteins. The efficient separation and enrichment of glycoproteins from complex biological samples is one key aspect and represents a major bottleneck of glycoproteome research. In this paper, we have explored pH multimodal hydrophobic interaction chromatography to separate glycosylated from non-glycosylated forms of proteins. Three different proteins, ribonuclease, invertase and IgG, have been examined and different glycoforms have been identified. The media itself shows strong responsiveness to small variations in pH, which makes it possible to fine-tune the chromatographic conditions according to the properties of the protein isolated. Optimal glycoprotein separation has been obtained at pH 4. The pH responsive multimodal HIC medium in contrast to conventional HIC media is able to resolve contaminating DNA.
