The primary structures of 32 sulfated di-, tri- and tetraantennary N-glycans of human Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein (THP) have been determined. THP was isolated from the urine of one healthy male donor. The intact carbohydrate chains were released by PNGase-F and fractionated via FPLC on Resource Q, HPLC on LiChrosorb-NH2, and high-pH anion-exchange(More)
Transferrin, a glycoprotein involved in iron transport in body fluids, was isolated from amniotic fluid of a hydramniospatient by sequential anion-exchange chromatography and gel filtration. The N-glycans of human amniotic fluid transferrin (hAFT) were enzymatically liberated by PNGase-F digestion, isolated by gel filtration and fractionated by (high-pH)(More)
The N-glycosylation sites of human Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein from one healthy male donor have been characterized, based on an approach using endoproteinase Glu-C (V-8 protease, Staphylococcus aureus ) digestion and a combination of chromatographic techniques, automated Edman sequencing, and fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry. Seven out of the eight(More)
Uromodulin was isolated from urine of three pregnant women. Urine of each donor was collected at subsequent stages of their pregnancy and at one month after gestation. Each batch of uromodulin was enzymatically N-deglycosylated and the released N-glycans were isolated, quantified and profiled by high-pH anion-exchange chromatography. In the course of(More)
BACKGROUND (-)-Hydroxycitrate (HCA), a competitive inhibitor of ATP-citrate lyase, should reduce the extramitochondrial acetyl-CoA pool. It has been hypothesized that HCA ingestion can reduce malonyl-CoA concentrations and consequently increase fatty acid oxidation in vivo. OBJECTIVE This study investigated the acute effects of HCA supplementation on(More)
We present the first X-ray spectrum obtained by the Low Energy Transmission Grating Spectrometer (LETGS) aboard the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The spectrum is of Capella and covers a wavelength range of 5–175Å (2.5–0.07 keV). The measured wavelength resolution, which is in good agreement with ground calibration, is ∆λ ≃ 0.06Å (FWHM). Although in-flight(More)
During the encounter with comet Giacobini-Zinner, the energetic particle anisotropy spectrometer on the International Cometary Explorer spacecraft observed large fluxes of energetic ions, believed to result principally from ionization of the cometary atmosphere followed by pickup and acceleration by the ambient flow of the solar wind. These heavy cometary(More)
Previously, treatment of Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein (THp) from different donors with endo-beta-galactosidase has been shown to liberate a tetra- and a Sd(a)-active pentasaccharide, concluding the presence of N-linked carbohydrate chains containing additional N -acetyllactosamine units. These type of oligosaccharides were not found in a detailed structure(More)
