The Consortium for Functional Glycomics (CFG) is a large research initiative funded by NIGMS to understand the role of carbohydrate-protein interactions at the cell surface in cell-cell communication. The Microarray Core (Core E) of the CFG is housed in the DNA Array Core Facility at TSRI. Core E has designed a custom Affymetrix GeneChip, GLYCOv2, containing probe sets to monitor the expression of 2,001 human and mouse transcripts (see gene list and probe set annotation and 'perfect match' target sequences) relevant to the Consortium. The following classes of genes are represented on the Glyco-gene Chip:

  • Glycosyltransferases
  • Glycan-binding proteins (GBP)
  • Sulfotransferases
  • C-type lectins
  • Neuraminidases
  • Nucleotide sugar synthesis and transporter proteins
  • N-glycan biosynthesis related genes
  • Mucins
  • Proteoglycans
  • Growth factors
  • Cytokines
  • Chemokines

If you are interested in becoming part of the CFG and would like to use the GLYCOv2 GeneChip, please see the "how to join" section of our website or call the Core Facility at (858) 784-2263. For more information about Core E please see the Core E section of the CFG website.
