The L5 antigenic determinant was previously suggested to be a carbohydrate epitope present on murine cell recognition molecules in the developing brain and to be an early neural marker in the chick embryo. Here, we show that L5 immunoreactivity is associated with complex-type N-glycosidic oligosaccharides. To identify the carbohydrate structure recognized(More)
Selectin interactions with glycolipids have been examined previously under static conditions, whereas physiologic interactions mediated by selectins take place under flow. We find that under physiologic flow conditions, sialyl Lewis(x) (sLe(x)) glycolipid and sialyl Lewisa (sLe(a)) neoglycolipid support tethering and rolling adhesions of Chinese hamster(More)
Plants are potential hosts for the expression of recombinant glycoproteins intended for therapeutic purposes. However, N-glycans of mammalian glycoproteins produced in transgenic plants differ from their natural counterparts. The use of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-retention signal has been proposed to restrict glycosylation of plantibodies to only(More)
The monoclonal antibody HNK-1 originally raised to an antigenic marker of natural killer cells also binds to selected regions in nervous tissue. The antigen is a carbohydrate that has attracted much interest as its expression is developmentally regulated in nervous tissue, and it is found, and proposed to be a ligand, on several of the adhesive(More)
Di- to heptasaccharides isolated from total nondialyzable brain glycopeptides after release by alkaline borohydride treatment have been subjected to mass spectrometric and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic analyses supplemented by TLC-MS analyses of derived neoglycolipids. A family of Manol-terminating oligosaccharides has been revealed which(More)
Differences between the N-glycans of human serum erythropoietin and recombinant human erythropoietin The differences between the N-glycans of human erythropoietin (hEPO), extracted from serum, and recombinant human erythropoi-etin (rhEPO) reported by Skibeli et al 1 have received attention in the editorials of 2 other journals. One suggested that these(More)
Monitoring protein glycosylation is becoming increasingly important as novel recombinant glycoprotein therapeutics, such as glycoprotein hormones, cytokines and clotting factors, are introduced into clinical use. In this report, we describe an HPLC strategy and an improved and simplified pre-column derivatization procedure to profile N-linked glycans(More)
A diversity of high-affinity oligosaccharide ligands are identified for NKR-P1, a membrane protein on natural killer (NK) cells which contains an extracellular Ca(2+)-dependent lectin domain. Interactions of such oligosaccharides on the target cell surface with NKR-P1 on the killer cell surface are crucial both for target cell recognition and for delivery(More)
Eight preparations of recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO) with differing isoform compositions were produced by using different culture conditions and purification procedures. The N-glycan structures of these EPOs were analysed using a recently developed profiling procedure and identified using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass(More)
The mannose receptor (MR) is an endocytic protein on macrophages and dendritic cells, as well as on hepatic endothelial, kidney mesangial, tracheal smooth muscle, and retinal pigment epithelial cells. The extracellular portion contains two types of carbohydrate-recognition domain (CRD): eight membrane-proximal C-type CRDs and a membrane-distal cysteine-rich(More)
