A comprehensive monosaccharide composition of the N-glycans of donkey milk lactoferrin, isolated by ion exchange chromatography from an individual milk sample, was obtained by means of chymotryptic digestion, TiO2 and HILIC enrichment, reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography, electrospray mass spectrometry, and high collision dissociation fragmentation. The results obtained allowed identifying 26 different glycan structures, including high mannose, complex and hybrid N-glycans, linked to the protein backbone via an amide bond to asparagine residues located at the positions 137, 281 and 476. Altogether, the N-glycan structures determined revealed that most of the N-glycans identified in donkey milk lactoferrin are neutral complex/hybrid. Indeed, 10 neutral non-fucosylated complex/hybrid N-glycans and 4 neutral fucosylated complex/hybrid N-glycans were found. In addition, two high mannose N-glycans, four sialylated fucosylated complex N-glycans and six sialylated non-fucosylated complex N-glycans, one of which containing N-glycolylneuramin acid (Neu5Gc), were found. A comparison of the monosaccharide composition of the N-glycans of donkey milk lactoferrin with respect to that of human, bovine and goat milk lactoferrin is reported. Data are available via ProteomeXchange with identifier PXD004289.
