Dear Neal,

   I did this with a single-pass membrane protein, and what I did was to
IP as usual from a denaturing extract, wash a few times in Triton buffer,
then add the deglycosylation buffer to the beads-antibody-antigen complex,
followed by the enzyme, in this case EndoH.  I think I treated as usual,
then added more denaturing buffer, boiled, diluted out, and re-IP'd.  You
don't have to do this last, probably, just spin out and r/s in sample
buffer.  Bottom line - you should be able to deglycosylate on the beads.
