A unique 2-sulfated {beta}-galactan from the egg jelly of the sea urchin Glyptocidaris crenularis: conformation flexibility versus induction of the sperm acrosome reaction.
Sulfated polysaccharides from the egg jelly of sea urchins act as species-specific inducers of the sperm acrosome reaction, which is a rare molecular mechanism of carbohydrate-inducedExpand

Comparative genomics and phylogenomics of Trichostrongyloidea mitochondria reveal insights for molecular diagnosis and evolutionary biology of nematode worms
Abstract Haemonchus placei (Nematoda:Trichostrongyloidea:Haemonchidae) is a parasite of cattle and other ruminants that reduces the weight gain and increases mortality causing significant economicExpand

Expression of two different sulfated fucans by females of Lytechinus variegatus may regulate the seasonal variation in the fertilization of the sea urchin.
The egg jellies of sea urchins contain sulfated polysaccharides with unusual structures, composed of linear chains of l-fucose or l-galactose with well-defined repetitive units. The specific patternExpand

A deep water sea urchin: Evolution X Fertilization
The jelly coat (JC) that surrounds sea urchin eggs is mostly composed of a sulfated polysaccharide responsible for induction of sperm acrosome reaction, which is an obligatory event for successfulExpand
