Bile-salt-stimulated lipase (BSSL) is an enzyme present in human milk. BSSL is important for fat digestion in infants. It contains one site for N-glycosylation and a serine/threonine-rich domain which is highly O-glycosylated. Both N- and O-linked sugar chains were studied on native BSSL from three donors and compared to the glycosylation of recombinant BSSL produced in Chinese hamster ovary or mouse fibroblast (C-127) cell lines. The carbohydrate composition of oligosaccharides was mapped using sugar and methylation analyses, enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay, and different separation techniques. Native BSSL was found to be highly glycosylated (19–26%). It contained a high amount of fucosylated oligosaccharides and expressed both Lewis a and Lewis b blood group antigens. None of the recombinant BSSL forms contained fucose. N-linked structures on native BSSL were identified as mainly mono- and disialylated biantennary complex type structures with or without fucose substitution. High-pH anion-exchange chromatography analysis indicated that the recombinant forms of BSSL contained similar types ofN-glycan structures differing mainly in their content of sialic acid and by the absence of fucose residues. Native BSSL contained predominantly large O-linked oligosaccharides. This was in contrast to the recombinant forms of BSSL which contained mainly short typeO-glycans with a high content of sialic acid. Interestingly, the estimated number of O-glycans attached to native BSSL was lower than that for the recombinant forms.
