Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) is a multidomain protein that has been implicated in cell adhesion, motility, and growth. Some of these functions have been localized to the three thrombospondin type 1 repeats (TSRs), modules of approximately 60 amino acids in length with conserved Cys and Trp residues. The Trp residues occur in WXXW patterns, which are the(More)
Mass spectrometry (MS) of glycoproteins is an emerging field in proteomics, poised to meet the technical demand for elucidation of the structural complexity and functions of the oligosaccharide components of molecules. Considering the divergence of the mass spectrometric methods employed for oligosaccharide analysis in recent publications, it is necessary(More)
The site-specific O-glycosylation of MUC1 tandem repeat peptides from secretory mucin of T47D breast cancer cells was analyzed. After affinity isolation on immobilized BC3 antibody, MUC1 was partially deglycosylated by enzymatic treatment with alpha-sialidase/beta-galactosidase and fragmented by proteolytic cleavage with the Arg-C-specific endopeptidase(More)
Crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) was isolated from sinus glands of Carcinus maenas, and its primary structure was determined by manual microsequencing, using the DABITC-PITC double-coupling method. The neurohormone consists of 72 amino acid residues (8524 Da). Three disulfide bridges are present and both the N- and C-terminus are blocked. CHH does not(More)
The primary structures of nine major saccharide alditols in the fraction of neutral carbohydrates derived from human seminal plasma mucin have been established on the basis of fast atom bombardment and electron impact mass spectrometry combined with methylation analysis, exoglycosidase digestion, and CrO3 oxidation, as follows. Formula: see text.
R24, a mouse IgG3 monoclonal antibody (MAb) against ganglioside GD3 (Neu5Acalpha8Neu5Acalpha3Gal beta4Glcbeta1Cer), can block tumor growth as reported in a series of clinical trials in patients with metastatic melanoma. The IgG molecule basically contains an asparagine-linked biantennary complex type oligosaccharide on the C(H)2 domain of each heavy chain,(More)
To investigate in detail the expression of glycosphingolipids (GSLs) on endothelial cells, 4.85 x 10(9) human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were cultivated in a 2 l bioreactor using microcarriers as a support for anchorage dependent growing cells. Neutral GSLs and gangliosides were isolated and their structures were determined by TLC(More)
Hybrid chondroitin/dermatan sulfate (CS/DS) glycosaminoglycan chains, derived from decorin secreted by human skin fibroblasts, were shown to interact with FGF-2, as did oligosaccharides derived therefrom by chondroitin B lyase digestion. In a first attempt to identify the biologically active sequence, a novel protocol for structural analysis of(More)
The final chemical structure of a newly synthesized protein is often only attained after further covalent modification. Ideally, a comprehensive proteome analysis includes this aspect, a task that is complicated by our incomplete knowledge of the range of possible modifications and often by the lack of suitable analysis methods. Here we present two recently(More)
