Merlin, the protein product of the neurofibromatosis type 2 gene (NF2) acts as a tumor suppressor in mice and humans. In this study, melanoma B16F10 cells were engineered to overexpress the NF2 gene by establishing stable transductants. A cell line overexpressing Merlin (B16F10-M) was generated. When compared to the parental cells, the B16F10-M cells(More)
Low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs) are produced from heparin by various depolymerization strategies, which result in a reduction of the average molecular weight of the polysaccharide chains, a reduction of the anti-factor IIa activity (and a concomitant increase in the anti-factor Xa/anti-factor IIa ratio), and introduction of process-related structural(More)
Unfractionated heparin is isolated from animal organs, predominantly porcine intestinal mucosa, and goes through an extensive process of purification before it can be used for pharmaceutical purposes. While the structural microheterogeneity of heparin is predominantly biosynthetically imprinted in the Golgi, subsequent steps involved in the purification and(More)
Heparan sulfate (HS), a glycosaminoglycan present on the surface of cells, has been postulated to have important roles in driving both normal and pathological physiologies. The chemical structure and sulfation pattern (domain structure) of HS is believed to determine its biological function, to vary across tissue types, and to be modified in the context of(More)
Complex mixtures of molecular species, such as glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans, have important biological and therapeutic functions. Characterization of these mixtures with analytical chemistry measurements is an important step when developing generic drugs such as biosimilars. Recent developments have focused on analytical methods and statistical(More)
