The N-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain of galectin-8 recognizes specific glycosphingolipids with high affinity.
Galectin-8 is a member of the galectin family and has two tandem repeated carbohydrate recognition domains (CRDs). We determined the binding specificities of galectin-8 and its two CRDs forExpand

Characterization of the binding epitope of a monoclonal antibody to sulphatide.
An IgG1 monoclonal antibody, Sulph I, reacting with sulphatide (3'-sulphogalactosylceramide), was produced by immunizing Balb/c mice with that glycolipid coated on Salmonella minnesota bacterialExpand

Requirement of Seminolipid in Spermatogenesis Revealed by UDP-galactose:Ceramide Galactosyltransferase-deficient Mice*
Although seminolipid has long been suspected to play an essential role in spermatogenesis because of its uniquely abundant and temporally regulated expression in the spermatocytes, directExpand

Surface-active novel glycolipid and linked 3-hydroxy fatty acids produced by Serratia rubidaea.
A Serratia rubidaea isolate with wetting activity when grown at 30 but not 37 degrees C was examined for the production of specific lipids. Two novel lipids (rubiwettins R1 and RG1) were isolated andExpand

Mutation in saposin D domain of sphingolipid activator protein gene causes urinary system defects and cerebellar Purkinje cell degeneration with accumulation of hydroxy fatty acid-containing ceramide
The sphingolipid activator proteins (saposins A, B, C and D) are small homologous glycoproteins that are encoded by a single gene in tandem within a large precursor protein (prosaposin) and areExpand

Immunohistochemical localization of minor gangliosides in the rat central nervous system.
We previously described the differential distribution of major gangliosides (GM1, GD1a, GD1b, GT1b and GQ1b) in adult rat brain detected by specific antibodies (Kotani, M., Kawashima, I., Ozawa, I.,Expand

Hepatocyte growth factor specifically binds to sulfoglycolipids.
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a heparin-binding pleiotropic factor that acts on a variety of epithelial cells. The interaction of human HGF with glycolipids was studied by overlaying them withExpand

Structure of a novel phosphocholine-containing glycoglycerolipid from Mycoplasma fermentans.
Mycoplasma fermentans is thought to be a pathogen of rheumatoid arthritis or cofactor of AIDS. A novel phosphocholine-containing glycoglycerophospholipid named GGPL-I was isolated from a M.Expand
