Bacterial polysaccharides obtained for the pathogen glycan array

Many mammalian glycan-binding proteins (GBPs) are believed to play a role in innate immunity through the recognition of pathogen glycans, but very little information is known about their specificity towards these glycans. To address this gap in knowledge, the CFG developed a unique pathogen glycan array to assess the specificity of these GBPs. Visit the status page for more information regarding availability of the pathogen glycan array.

Bacterial oligosaccharides obtained by the CFG. These polysaccharides are well defined in terms of serotyping and structural characterization. Most have been acquired in limited amounts (e.g. 2-10 mg). Investigators who have a specific interest in any of these glycans may inquire as to their availability (contact James C. Paulson at
