Cross-linking glucose to proteins?

Fri May 5 13:04:42 EST 1995

     The best way to attach Glucose to primary amine is reductive 
     amination.  There are literally thousands of references.  Some common 
     books which are usually found in every library are:
     Methods in Enzymology, Vol. 242 and 247
     Neoglycoproteins (Eds. Y.C. Lee and R.T. Lee), Academic Press, 1994.
     ISBN 0-12-440585-1
     Advances in Carbohydrate Chemistry and Biochemistry, Vol 37 (1980)
     Chapter by Lee et al., page 225-281
     Any undergraduate organic chemistry book will have a section on 
     reductive amination.
     Good Luck!

Hi all,
I would like to cross-link glucose molecules to carboxyl or primary amino 
groups.  Could somebody suggest reliable methods or refernces?  Thanks.
