WP1: Glycan Library

WP1: Glycan library
© CPKelco

WP1 will comprise the following research topics: Production and characterization of cell wall-extracted polysaccharides and oligosaccharides to be used (i) for the investigation of connecting points between pectic domains; (ii) for the generation of a FT-IR glycan database; (iii) for screening of cell wall active enzymes in WP2; and (iv) as targets for the production of monoclonal antibodies (MABs) (WP3) and subsequent microarray screening of MABs & carbohydrate binding modules (CBMs) (WP4). WP1 also aims at revealing specific variations in pectin structure between the most commonly used dry citrus peels during the industrial extraction process.

CP Kelco (work package leader) & INRA will cooperate to collectively produce, tailor and analyse the polymeric and oligomeric samples. University of Leeds & University of Copenhagen will take an active part in this work package by ensuring, through ESRs secondment at INRA, the production and characterization of selected oligosaccharides sets to be used in WP3 & WP4.
