Sialic acid in the non-reducing terminal of a glycoprotein, glycolipid, and the oligosaccharide chain, is acid sugar with important bioactivity. Also, it has been attracting attention as a marker of the cancerous change. Serotonin is known to sialic acid as a material having combination specificity.
It immobilizes serotonin in barotolerant resin and fills it in the HPLC column. It does the separation and refinement of a glycoprotein and sugar chain based on the number of the sialic acid. LAS is dedicated for sugar chain.
