Abstract

An effective method to prepare plant complex type (PCT) N-glycans in large amounts has been required to evaluate their immunological activity. In this study, we found that glycoproteins in bamboo shoots predominantly carry PCT N-glycans including the Lewis a epitope-containing ones, suggesting that bamboo shoot is an excellent source for the plant antigenic glycans to synthesize immunoactive neoglycopolymers.
