Glycosylation and Mab production

Hi all,
  I hoping someone out there maybe able to give me some ideas.  I 
am currently making antibodies to a protein which has high levels of 
glycosylation.  I have made several mAbs now to the glycosylated 
section but want to make some to the non-glycosylated section. It 
appears that the glycosylated section is immunodominant. I was 
thinking of using sodium periodate to remove the glycosylation and 
hopefully expose the other antigens (and get mabs to them) but if 
anyone has any other ideas/suggestions it would be greatly 

Thanks in advance
