Glucosidase II (GII) plays a key role in glycoprotein biogenesis in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). It is responsible for the sequential removal of the two innermost glucose residues from the glycan (Glc(3)Man(9)GlcNAc(2)) transferred to Asn residues in proteins. GII participates in the calnexin/calreticulin cycle; it removes the single glucose unit added(More)
Glypican-3 (GPC3) is a proteoglycan involved in migration, proliferation and cell survival modulation in several tissues. There are many reports demonstrating a downregulation of GPC3 expression in some human tumors, including mesothelioma, ovarian and breast cancer. Previously, we determined that GPC3 reexpression in the murine mammary adenocarcinoma LM3(More)
Glypican-3 (GPC3) is a proteoglycan involved in proliferation and cell survival. Several reports demonstrated that GPC3 is downregulated in some tumors, such as breast cancer. Previously, we determined that GPC3 reexpression in the murine mammary adenocarcinoma LM3 cells induced an impairment of their invasive and metastatic capacities, associated with a(More)
The in vitro culture of insulinomas provides an attractive tool to study cell proliferation and insulin synthesis and secretion. However, only a few human beta cell lines have been described, with long-term passage resulting in loss of insulin secretion. Therefore, we set out to establish and characterize human insulin-releasing cell lines. We generated(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine whether the use of unilateral (u-ACP) or bilateral antegrade cerebral perfusion (b-ACP) results in different mortality and neurologic outcomes after complex aortic surgery. METHODS PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were searched for studies reporting on postoperative mortality and permanent (PND) and(More)
Glucosidase II (GII) sequentially removes the two innermost glucose residues from the glycan (Glc(3)Man(9)GlcNAc(2)) transferred to proteins. GII also participates in cycles involving the lectin/chaperones calnexin (CNX) and calreticulin (CRT) as it removes the single glucose unit added to folding intermediates and misfolded glycoproteins by the(More)
Here we report for the first time the three-dimensional structure of a mannose 6-phosphate receptor homology (MRH) domain present in a protein with enzymatic activity, glucosidase II (GII). GII is involved in glycoprotein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum. GII removes the two innermost glucose residues from the Glc3Man9GlcNAc2 transferred to nascent(More)
