Oligosaccharides with four different types of branching were prepared from purified human transferrin, alpha 2-macroglobulin, caeruloplasmin and alpha 1-acid glycoprotein and labelled with NaBH3 3H. Binding of these oligosaccharides to rat liver plasma membrane, rat leucocytes, pig liver plasma membranes and pig leucocyte plasma membranes was investigated.(More)
Many structures and molecules closely related to those involved in the specific process of immunoglobulin (Ig) hypermutation existed before the appearance of primordial Ig genes. Consequently, these structures can be found even in animals and organisms distinct from vertebrates; likewise, homologues of hypermutation enzymes are present in a broad range of(More)
Sequences of immunoglobulin (Ig) domains of adhesive molecule GSAMS from the living fossil sponge Geodia cydonium were compared with the important motif of peptide protein kinase substrates and inhibitors (PKSI), detail PKSI sequences, and a common template sequence, derived from structures determined previously. We found the site-restricted sequence(More)
Membrane lectins of mammalian large granular lymphocytes are thought to be important receptors in their non-major-histocompatibility complex-restricted activation. A triantennary desialylated oligosaccharide has been reported as the most effective triggering structure [Pospísil M., Kubrycht J., Bezouska K., Táborský O., Novák M. & Kocourek J. (1986)(More)
Inhibition of pig NK cell activity by asialooligosaccharides (aOS) isolated from human serum glycoproteins was investigated. Train-tennary aOS (aOSIII) of ceruloplasmin was found to be the most potent inhibitor up to the concentration 0.1 micrograms/ml, which is in agreement with its highly specific binding to NK-activity-enriched pig lymphocytes (with a(More)
Virtual interactomics represents a rapidly developing scientific area on the boundary line of bioinformatics and interactomics. Protein-related virtual interactomics then comprises instrumental tools for prediction, simulation, and networking of the majority of interactions important for structural and individual reproduction, differentiation, recognition,(More)
Some leukocyte effector cell-surface molecules movement toward the adjoining target cells takes place during the reaction of NK cytotoxicity (NK R). The majority of the moving molecules are usually anchored via a divalent-ion-dependent interaction (PMM-M2+). The released PMM-M2+ can interact also with the secreted tumor necrosis factor alfa (TNF-alpha). In(More)
Mannan-binding proteins found in the liver and serum of several vertebrate species are supposed to play an important role in the intracellular transport of glycoproteins, as well as in several protective reactions including complement activation and elimination of various pathogens. To study these protective functions at molecular level it is necessary to(More)
The motif DGYW/WRCH (Mh) and its frequently discussed simplified derivative GYW/WRC (Mhs) are involved in immunoglobulin (Ig) hypermutation. Both these motifs appear to be markedly shorter than the corresponding conventionally predicted minima of valid sequence lengths (MVSL). The same conclusion concerning both Mh and Mhs can also be obtained in the(More)
