Both boronate chromatography and lectin affinity chromatography have considerable potential for future use in biotechnology. Proteins with proper glycosylation are becoming more and more important because it is perceived to the desirable to have proper glycosylation for therapeutic purposes. In addition, researchers are becoming more and more aware that the structures of oligosaccharides bound to glycosylated proteins contain valuable information on the biological system from which the protein was isolated. It appears that both boronate and affinity chromatography will be valuable in basic research and in commercial protein purification and undoubtedly for other applications as yet unknown.
