Core Facilities
Supporting the glycobiology needs of the PEG and the scientific community

Research in the PEG is supported by a number of core facilities. In addition, these facilities will provide support for the scientific community by providing protocols, technical help, and reagents (collaboration or at cost).

Cores Include:

This core will provides protocols, and analysis using state-of-the-art mass spectrometry (MS) and other proteomic technologies, including identification of glycoproteins, glycosylation sites information, quantitative glycosylation site occupancy, and glycan screening and determination.. Costs:Agreement of collaboration

NMR Core
If samples allow, NMR is the best way to analyze glycan or glycoconjugate structure. Costs: Agreement of collaboration Availability: Immediate and Upcoming

The Chemistry Core
The core specializes in monosaccharide analogues used in "metabolic glycoengeering" technology but is also pursuing inhibitors of glycosyltransferases and developing methods to improve the pharmacological properties of sugar based drugs to facilitate their in vivo use and clinical translation. Costs: Agreement of collaboration Availability: Immediate and Upcoming

O-GlcNAc Resources
The O-GlcNAc core will provide the necessary reagents, specialized equipment, and expertise to study the O-GlcNAc modification in cardiac models, as well as providing a national resource for studying O-GlcNAcylation in physiological models of interest to the NHLBI. Costs: Agreement of collaboration

Myocyte Isolation and Myocyte and Cardiac Physiology
Core D provides a centralized mechanism to generate cellular and organ-level analysis of cardiovascular function, and to supply individual projects with isolated myocytes for additional molecular/protein analysis. Costs: Agreement of collaboration Availability: Immediate
