Murine glycosylation
Abstract: In this thesis, methods were developed, and antibody glycosylation was characterized in order to further the clinical application of antibody glycosylation analysis. New mass spectrometric workflows were introduced in Chapters 2 and 8. Chapter 7 showed the differential characteristics of murine IgG glycosylation of different strains and highlighted the profound differences between humans and mice, with regard to IgG glycosylation. Chapters 4 and 8 showed the use of controlled human situations to study the regulatory mechanisms of IgG and IgA glycosylation. Finally, Chapters 3, 5 and 6, identified glycosidic differences with specified (patho)physiological conditions, which might be exploited for patient stratification in the future.
