Human ॆ 1,6- N -acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT-V) was expressed by baculovirus-insect cell system, and the purified recombinant enzyme was kinetically characterized. The data obtained were used to establish the kinetic basis of the substrate specificity toward donor nucleotide sugars, and...
The fructan family of oligo- and polysaccharides is a group of molecules that have long been implicated as protective agents in the drought and freezing tolerance of many plant species. However, it has been unclear whether fructans have properties that make them better protectants for cellular...
Ecalectin/galectin-9 was recently described as a novel eosinophil chemoattractant highly expressed in immune tissues. We investigated the regulation of galectin-9 expression and release in Jurkat (a T cell line) cells. We demonstrated that medium and long-sized galectin-9 isoforms were...
Sialic acids are a group of carboxylated amino sugars important for a variety of cellular functions. N -Acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) is the predominant sialic acid in nature. Neu5Ac-9-phosphate synthase catalyzes the formation of Neu5Ac-9-phosphate from N -acetylmannosamine-6-phosphate and...
In this study, we report the first cloning and characterization of a N -acetylneuraminic acid phosphate synthase gene from Drosophila melanogaster , an insect in the protostome lineage. The gene is ubiquitously expressed at all stages of Drosophila development and in Schneider cells. Similar to...
Glycosyltransferases involved in N- and O-glycan chain elongation and termination are localized in the Golgi apparatus. Early evidence in support of this rule was based on fractionation techniques and was corroborated by numerous immunocytochemical studies. Usually these studies were confined to...
We report here the purification, characterization, and cDNA cloning of a novel N -acetylgalactosamine-specific lectin from starfish, Asterina pectinifera . The purified lectin showed 19-kDa, 41-kDa, and 60-kDa protein bands on SDS–PAGE, possibly corresponding to a monomer, homodimer, and...
The addition of N-linked glycans to a protein is catalyzed by oligosaccharyltransferase, an enzyme closely associated with the translocon. N-glycans are believed to be transferred as the protein is being synthesized and cotranslationally translocated in the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum. We...
Galectin-3 is an endogenous mammalian lectin that binds to ABH carbohydrate antigens. Here we show that galectin-3 is strongly up-regulated during mammary gland involution and that it is expressed virtually exclusively on nonapoptotic cells. We demonstrate that dexamethasone, an inhibitor of the...
Recently, complex O- glycosylation of the cytoplasmic/nuclear protein Skp1 has been characterized in the eukaryotic microorganism Dictyostelium . Skp1’s glycosylation is mediated by the sequential action of a prolyl hydroxylase and five conventional sugar nucleotide–dependent...
