It depends on what source your protein comes from mammal, insect, plant,
etc. Go to the literature and check out what is likely to be on the
protein. Then get a catolgue from EY labs or Vector and pick out the ones
that seem most likely. That should give you a start anyway. The
alternative is get a friendly glycobiologist to do it for you.
