Arabinan polysaccharide side-chains are present in both Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Corynebacterium glutamicum in the heteropolysaccharide arabinogalactan (AG), and in M. tuberculosis in the lipoglycan lipoarabinomannan (LAM). This study shows by quantitative sugar and glycosyl linkage analysis that C. glutamicum possesses a much smaller LAM version,(More)
Gene therapy has attracted much interest since the first submissions of phase I clinical trials in the early 1990s, for the treatment of inherited genetic diseases. Preliminary results were very encouraging and prompted many investigators to submit protocols for phase I and phase II clinical trials for the treatment of inherited genetic diseases and cancer.(More)
Phosphomannomutase 2 (PMM2) deficiency represents the most frequent type of congenital disorders of glycosylation. For this disease there is no cure at present. The complete loss of phosphomannomutase activity is probably not compatible with life and people affected carry at least one allele with residual activity. We characterized wild-type PMM2 and its(More)
