Podocytes have a significant role in establishing selective permeability of the glomerular filtration barrier. Sustained renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system activation is crucial to the pathogenesis of podocyte injury, but the mechanisms by which angiotensin II modulates podocyte survival due to physiological or injurious stimuli remain unclear. Here, we(More)
BACKGROUND Despite progress in adjuvant chemotherapy in the recent decades, pancreatic and colon cancers remain common causes of death worldwide. Bacterial toxins, which specifically bind to cell surface-exposed glycosphingolipids, are a potential novel therapy. We determined the expression of globotriaosylceramide (Gb3Cer/CD77), the Shiga toxin receptor,(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder, but still without known disease mechanism, proper treatment and efficient diagnostic tools for an early stage diagnosis. There is increasing evidence that lipids, especially cholesterol and sphingolipids, may play a role in pathological processes that occur in the AD brain even in very(More)
The structure of the precursor of a molt-inhibiting hormone (MIH) of the American crayfish, Orconectes limosus was determined by cloning of a cDNA based on RNA from the neurosecretory perikarya of the X-organ in the eyestalk ganglia. The open reading frame includes the complete precursor sequence, consisting of a signal peptide of 29, and the MIH sequence(More)
From sinus glands of the Australian crayfish Cherax destructor, two genetic variants of the crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) were isolated by HPLC and fully characterized by mass spectrometry and Edman sequencing. Both CHH A (8350.38 Da) and CHH B (8370.34 Da) consist of 72 amino acid residues, with pyroGlu as N-terminus and an amidated (Val-NH2)(More)
RATIONALE Schindler disease is caused by the deficient activity of α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase, which leads to an abnormal accumulation of O-glycopeptides in tissues and body fluids. In this work the Schindler condition is for the first time approached by ion mobility (IMS) tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), for determining urine glycopeptide fingerprints(More)
BACKGROUND Heavy metals naturally occur in the marine environment and ecosystems. Due to anthropogenic influence they became common waters and coastal regions pollutants in particular where their concentrations remain hazardously high. We therefore tested a protocol for combined analysis of 6 heavy metal (Pb, Cd, Cr, Zn, Fe and Hg) concentrations in mussels(More)
Human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) represent the bioactive components of human milk, influencing the infant's gastrointestinal microflora and immune system. Structurally, they represent a highly complex class of analyte, where the main core oligosaccharide structures are built from galactose and N-acetylglucosamine, linked by 1-3 or 1-4 glycosidic linkages(More)
The patterns of acidic and neutral glycosphingolipids (GSLs) were examined in a syngeneic tumour system in Balb/c mice consisting of closely related cell lines with different colonisation potentials directed to the murine lungs (in vivo selected highly metastatic sublines of L1-fibrosarcoma cells and their WGA-resistant mutants with low metastatic(More)
