Researchers have devised a way to identify glycoproteins having specific sugar residues on a proteome-wide scale. The technique developed by Benjamin F. Cravatt of Scripps Research Institute, Chi-Huey Wong of Scripps and Academia Sinica, in Taiwan, and coworkers could aid understanding of the function of specific sugars and glycoproteins in cells and lead to diagnostic procedures for distinguishing healthy and diseased tissues by their sugar content (J.
