    Mucin glycosylation is the key facilitator of microbial attachment and nutrition and it varies according to biological location, health and disease status, microbiome composition, infection, and multiple other factors. Mucin glycans have also been reported to attenuate pathogen virulence and mediate biofilm dispersal. With the labor intensive and time-consuming purification required for natural mucins and their low quantitative yield from biological sources, natural mucin microarrays provide a convenient and multiplexed platform to study mucin glycosylation and interactions. In this chapter we describe the purification of natural mucins, using sputum as an example biological source, and the printing of natural mucin microarrays. © 2022.
