Whenever we get a new protein, we start testing conditions with the sparse
matrix sampling screen.  The modifications you described (tyrosinated &
glycosylated) may indeed interfere with your crystallization (the protein
needs to be a pure/homogeneous as possible). However, diffraction quality
crystals have been obtained from heterogeneous mixtures of a protein!  Happy
