Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are known to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases and therefore effects of AGEs on cells are the objective of numerous investigations. Since AGEs used in biochemical studies are usually not chemically characterized, comparison of data is difficult if not impossible. To find a suitable characterization(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that arise from the reaction of sugars with protein side chains are supposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases; therefore, the effects of AGEs on cells are the objective of numerous investigations. Because AGE modifications are an extremely heterogeneous group of side chain modifications, the exact(More)
Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) arise from the reaction of sugars with side chains and the N-terminus of proteins and are thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases by inducing oxidative stress, inflammation and cell death presumably mediated through activation of the receptor of AGE (RAGE). To address the question whether the cell(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are sugar-modified proteins that are known to appear in vivo and are suspected to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases. Although different cellular responses to AGEs can be measured in cell culture studies, knowledge about the nature of AGE-binding and their cell surface receptors is poor. In the present(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that arise from the reaction of sugars with protein side chains and the terminal amino group are supposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases and therefore the effects of AGEs on cells are the objective of numerous investigations. The effects of AGEs on cells are commonly assumed to be transduced via(More)
Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) arise in vivo from the reaction of proteins with sugars or dicarbonyl compounds. They are thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, renal failure, and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Several binding molecules for AGEs have been described and it is assumed that(More)

The major light-harvesting complex (LHC) of the prasinophycean alga Mantoniella squamata is unique compared to other chlorophyll (Chl) a/b-binding LHC with respect to the primary protein structure and the pigmentation. Although the presence of Chl a, Chl b, a Chl c-type pigment and the xanthophylls neoxanthin, violaxanthin and prasinoxanthin was clearly(More)
