Horseradish peroxidase (E.C. 1.11.1.7) isozyme c (HRPc) is a glycoprotein found to contain 21.8% carbohydrate with the average composition: 2 mol GlcNAc, 2.6 mol Man, and 0.8 mol each of Fuc and Xyl. The oligosaccharides of HRPc were investigated by a combination of High pH Anion-Exchange Chromatography with Pulsed Amperometric Detection, methylation(More)
Trifluoroacetic anhydride is an effective promoter for the preparation of chitin single- and mixed-acid esters. Complete dissolution is achieved within 30 min when powdered chitin is heated at 70 degrees C in a mixed solution of carboxylic acid(s) and trifluoroacetic anhydride. Chitin esters prepared are chitin acetate, chitin butyrate, chitin hexanoate and(More)
Advances in anesthetic and surgical management, such as induced deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and application of temporary clips, have improved outcome for patients with basilar artery aneurysms. Nonetheless, these techniques are associated with significant risks. The authors report a case in which three transient periods of cardiac asystole were(More)
BACKGROUND Rosai-Dorfman disease is a rare idiopathic disorder of proliferative histiocytes affecting the lymph nodes. It usually manifests as bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy and fever with concurrent polyhyperglobulinemia. Cases involving the nervous system are quite rare; most CNS lesions are located intracranially or arise from the spinal dura or(More)
The tryptic glycopeptides of horseradish peroxidase isozyme c (HRPc) were studied by methylation linkage analysis, exoglycosidase degradation, and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDITOFMS). Over 90% of the predicted tryptic peptides and glycopeptides of HRPc could be identified in the unfractionated digest.(More)
The acetyl groups in polysaccharides and glycoproteins have been determined using 4 N HCl at 120 degrees C for acid hydrolysis. Acetic acid and hexosamine were determined by high-performance cation-exchange chromatography with UV detection and high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperomeric detection, respectively. The method compares(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Tubulointerstitial injury plays an important role in the progression of immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN), and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is among the most sensitive tubular biomarkers. We investigated whether serum or urine NGAL predicts prognosis in patients with IgAN. METHODS The present study enrolled patients(More)
Corn steep water (CSW) and other byproducts derived from fermentations and sugar productions are presently forming the base of compositions for de-icing and anti-icing materials. Since the de-icing and anti-icing values are in part a colligative property, increase in the molar concentration of ionic species has been frequently necessary to decrease further(More)
The expansion of glycomics analysis is reliant upon the development of robust, routine methods for carbohydrate characterization. Simple protocols to derivatize sugars with functionality that facilitate analysis-chromophores, fluorophores, charges, ionizable groups-are therefore necessary. Here we describe a method for the labeling of oligosaccharide(More)
