Glycoproteins on Chinese hamster ovary cells were chemically tagged with biotin and illuminated with fluorescently labeled streptavidin. Biotin was introduced by using a novel and efficient labeling procedure developed by researchers in the laboratories of J. Paulson and P. Dawson. Selective periodate oxidation of cell-surface sialic acids was followed by an aniline-catalyzed oxime ligation. Nuclei were stained with TOTO-3 (blue).
