The GLAD tool utilizes the CFG format of condensed IUPAC names for glycans in order to draw the structures on-the-fly during the analysis. This allows any user to draw the structures which they would like. The tool below uses the same rendering engine as that used in the GLAD tool, and can be used as a means of checking the CFG names of glycans.

Try writing the glycan name below. Once the name length is >10 characters the structures will start to draw provided the name is in the correct CFG format.

The drawing feature can draw glycopeptides.

Example names:

  • For glycans: Galb1-4GlcNAcb1-3Gal-Sp8
  • For glycopeptides use { } e.g. AKA{Galb1-3GalNAca1-T}EPPEL{GalNAca1-T}
  • For peptides without glycan put an empty {} before the name. e.g. {}AKAEPPEL

See the animated example below.
