Association of rheumatoid arthritis and primary osteoarthritis with changes in the glycosylation pattern of total serum IgG
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a widely prevalent (1–3%) chronic systemic disease thought to have an autoimmune component1; both humoral1–4 and cellular5,6 mechanisms have been implicated. PrimaryExpand

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
  • 9 November 1999
Prion protein consists of an ensemble of glycosylated variants or glycoforms. The enzymes that direct oligosaccharide processing, and hence control the glycan profile for any given glycoprotein, areExpand

Structures of sialylated O-linked oligosaccharides of bovine peripheral nerve alpha-dystroglycan. The role of a novel O-mannosyl-type oligosaccharide in the binding of alpha-dystroglycan with laminin.
alpha-Dystroglycan is a heavily glycosylated protein, which is localized on the Schwann cell membrane as well as the sarcolemma, and links the transmembrane protein beta-dystroglycan to laminin inExpand

Diversity of oligosaccharide structures linked to asparagines of the scrapie prion protein.
Prion proteins from humans and rodents contain two consensus sites for asparagine-linked glycosylation near their C-termini. The asparagine-linked oligosaccharides of the scrapie isoform of theExpand

Structural and numerical variations of the carbohydrate moiety of immunoglobulin G.
Oligosaccharide patterns obtained from human IgG by hydrazinolysis were fairly constant from sample to sample. In contrast, a variety of oligosaccharide patterns were obtained from IgG myelomaExpand
