Two water-soluble complex carbohydrate storage products were isolated from tissues and urine of patients with an inherited deficiency of lysosomal alpha-L-fucosidase (fucosidosis). The major component was an oligosaccharide of approximate molecular weight 1700, indicating that it was a dekasaccharide. From a combination of sequential digestion with purified(More)
Temperature is a key environmental variable whose potential in animal cell fermentor optimization is not yet fully utilized. The scarce literature data suggests that reduced fermentor temperature results in an improved viability and shear resistance, higher cell density and titer in batch cultures, and reduction in glucose/lactate metabolism. Due to the(More)
Acid treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa immunotype 1 lipopolysaccharide generated a low-molecular-weight polysaccharide fraction that was detectable in agar gel immunodiffusion but did not induce antibodies or resistance to infection in mice. The polysaccharide was treated with periodate to generate additional aldehyde groups. Oxidized polysaccharide was(More)
1. An endo-beta-galactosidase from Escherichia freundii, specific for the hydrolysis of desulfated keratan sulfate, quantitatively liberated a trisaccharide (Gal-GlcNAc-Gal) from a glycopeptide (Mr 1800) isolated from the liver of a patient with GM 1 (generalized) gangliosidosis. 2. The remaining glycopeptide was susceptible to sequential digestion with(More)
Psoriasis, an inflammatory skin disease triggered by the immune system, presents keratinocyte hyperproliferation, differentiation and angiogenesis. The role of transglutaminase-2 (TG2) in psoriasis has not been fully established yet. In this retrospective, non-randomized and non-blinded study, skin biopsies were collected from 37 psoriatic patients and(More)
