Twenty low molecular weight compounds were tested as substrates for UDP-GlcNAc:alpha-D-mannoside (GlcNAc to Man alpha 1-3) beta 2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I (GlcNAc-transferase I) purified from bovine colostrum. This enzyme is at a key control point in the biosynthetic path leading to complex Asn-linked oligosaccharides. The highest activity was(More)
Many mammalian and avian complex carbohydrates (glycoproteins and glycolipids) have highly branched oligosaccharides. Although the function of complex carbohydrates is not known, there is evidence to suggest that oligosaccharide branching may be an important factor in the process by which cells recognize one another and their environment. Asparagine-linked(More)
Polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis has been traditionally used for the analysis of synthetic oligodeoxyribonucleotides. As the demand for oligonucleotides of high purity has increased, a need for additional high resolution analytical techniques has arisen. This report describes the principles and application of capillary gel electrophoresis and(More)
The need for high-purity oligodeoxyribonucleotides for various applications has resulted in the development of novel synthesis, purification, and analytical techniques. A diversity of methods, including polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis, capillary gel electrophoresis, as well as high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), have been successfully(More)
The interaction of human myelin basic protein with lipophilin has been demonstrated by affinity chromatography. The interaction was specific since neither basic protein, nor albumin bound to an affinity column consisting of BP bound to agarose. Conversely an albumin affinity column failed to bind BP. The pH dependency of the interaction correlated with the(More)
Production of protein therapeutics through the application of genetic engineering and biotechnology techniques requires comprehensive attention to good manufacturing practice and good laboratory practice (GMP/GLP) guidelines for product recovery and purification. Validated clean-in-place procedures are part of the master method and require analysis of(More)
The synthesis of structural analogs and the process of drug discovery have evolved dramatically through recent advances in solid-phase synthesis reagents and automated screening systems. As molecular diversity strategies emerge, the need for automated target-based selection of lead candidates becomes equally important. Multidimensional automated(More)
Robotized manufacturing cells are required more and more often to process high variety of short life-cycle product. This increases the need for methods and techniques for easy reconfiguration of software programs running in programmable logic controllers (PLC), i.e., devices able to control manufacturing systems. PLCs run embedded code characterized by a(More)
This paper discusses some crucial issues associated with the exploitation of data and information about health care for the improvement of patient safety. In particular, the issues of human factors and safety management are analysed in relation to exploitation of reports about non-conformity events and field observations. A methodology for integrating field(More)
