Lectin binding has been studied using the particle plasmon light-scattering properties of gold nanoparticles printed into an array format. Performance of the kinetic assay is evaluated from a detailed analysis of the binding of concanavalin A (ConA) and wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) to their target monosaccharides indicating affinity constants in the order of KD ∼10 nM for the lectin-monosaccharide interaction. The detection limits for the lectins following a 200 s injection time were determined as 10 ng/mL or 0.23 nM and 100 ng/mL or 0.93 nM, respectively. Subsequently, a nine-lectin screen was performed on the porcine and human fibrinogen glycoproteins. The observed spectra of lectin-protein specific binding rates result in characteristic patterns that evidently correlate with the structure of the glycans and allow one to distinguish between glycosylation of the porcine and human fibrinogens. The array technology has the potential to perform a multilectin screen of large numbers of proteins providing information on protein glycosylation and their microheterogeneity.
