How do I know a protein can be highly glycosylated?

I want to find proteins (in Drosophila) that are potentially highly glycosylated. Is there a way or database for it? Thanks.

Hello March,

Hello March,
You might want to try the GlycoSuiteDB database - release 8.0 in August of 2005. It contains 3238 unique glycan structures, 1851 of which are completley characterized. There are currently 1171 individual biological sources represented from 245 species.
www.glycosuite.com
There is also a 'guru' in glycostructural (NMR) work at Berkley - Dr. Herman Van Halbeek. You may want to contact him.
I hope this helps....and best wishes!

Hello cdnsciguy,

Hello cdnsciguy,
I appreciate your reply. I haven't had a chance to see if it works for me coz I don't have its license. But I saw this database can make a taxonomy query and it includes Drosophila. It definitely is a helpful resource to me if such a query can give me a list of proteins that are annotated highly glycosylated. Thanks again and all the best.
