Welcome to the Database of Anti-Glycan Reagents (DAGR)

The website can be used to search and identify antibodies and reagent lectins to various carbohydrates. The database is currently populated with >1100 anti-glycan reagents. Since new antibodies/lectins and new information are continuously being generated, it is our hope that members of the community will help to improve and expand the information. Therefore, please also add information about existing antibodies/lectins or add new antibodies/lectins to the database via the links on the left. Please feel free to contact us to provide suggestions to improve the database and website.

An introduction to DAGR and a summary of anti-glycan antibodies in the database can be found in the following publication: Sterner, E.; Flanagan, N.; Gildersleeve, J.C. “Perspectives on Anti-Glycan Antibodies Gleaned from Development of a Community Resource Database” ACS Chem. Biol. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acschembio.6b00244

We thank Eric Sterner, Natalie Flanagan, W. Shea Wright, and Matthew Gildersleeve for collecting data for the database. We thank Nancy Brandt, Ben Shorb, and Archana Shrestha for developing the Database of Anti-Glycan Reagents website.
