Abstract Avian serum immunoglobulin (IgG or IgY) is functionally equivalent to mammalian IgG but has one additional constant region domain (CH2) in its heavy (H) chain. In chicken IgG, each H-chain contains two potential N-glycosylation sites located on CH2 and CH3 domains. To clarify characteristics of N-glycosylation on avian IgG, we analyze N-glycans from chicken serum IgG by derivatization with 2-aminopyridine (PA) and identified by HPLC and MALDI-TOF-MS. There were two types of N-glycans: (1) high-mannose-type oligosaccharides (monoglucosylated 26.8\%, others 10.5\%) and (2) biantennary complex-type oligosaccharides (neutral, 29.9\%; monosialyl, 29.3\%; disialyl, 3.7\%) on molar basis of total N-glycans. To investigate the site-specific localization of different N-glycans, chicken serum IgG was digested with papain and separated into Fab [containing variable regions (VH + VL) + CH1 + CL] and Fc (containing CH3 + CH4) fragments. Con A stained only Fc (CH3 + CH4) and RCA-I stained only Fab fractions, suggesting that high-mannose-type oligosaccharides were located on Fc (CH3 + CH4) fragments, and variable regions of Fab contains complex-type N-glycans. MS analysis of chicken IgG-glycopeptides revealed that chicken CH3 domain (structurally equivalent to mammalian CH2 domain) contained only high-mannose-type oligosaccharides, whereas chicken CH2 domain contained only complex-type N-glycans. The N-glycosylation pattern on avian IgG is more analogous to that in mammalian IgE than IgG, presumably reflecting the structural similarity to mammalian IgE.
