The solution conformations of GM4 ganglioside [NeuAc(alpha 2----3)Gal (beta 1----1)Cer] in (2H3C)2SO and its component disaccharide in 2H2O were investigated with the aid of 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (nuclear Overhauser effect, analysis of coupling constants) and by energy-minimum calculations. The existence of three low-energy conformers… (More)
Spatial structures of the oligosaccharide parts of globotriaosylceramide, Gal(alpha 1-4)Gal(beta 1-4)Glc(beta 1-1)Cer (Cer = ceramide) and isoglobotriaosylceramide, Gal(alpha 1-3)Gal(beta 1-4)Glc(beta 1-1)Cer were investigated in (C2H3)2SO solution by means of laboratory and rotating frame NOE, hydroxyl protons being used as long-range sensors defining the… (More)
Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) and cholera enterotoxin stimulate small-intestine mucosal adenylate cyclase and intestinal secretion of water and electrolytes. The previous suggestion that PGE may mediate cholera-toxin effects was explored in these studies. Closed rabbit jejunal loops were injected in vivo with cholera toxin and compared to similar loops in the… (More)
An hybrid experiment, composed of 1H-NMR total correlation spectroscopy (TOCSY) and rotating frame nuclear Overhauser enhancement spectroscopy (ROESY) steps, makes it possible to determine both the partial (disaccharide) sequences, and the sequential order, of whole linear and branched oligosaccharide chains.
The conformation of Forssman glycolipid, GalNAc alpha 1-3GalNAc beta 1-3Gal alpha 1-4Gal beta 1-4Glc beta 1-1ceramide, was analysed with the aid of the rotating frame NOE and Hartmann-Hahn spectroscopy. NOE contacts between C-, O-, and N-linked protons were used for distance mapping. The glycosidic bonds that are common to globotriaosylceramide and… (More)
Mature fruits collected from different milk thistle (Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertn.) plants, grown in various habitats in Europe, were analysed for silymarin content and variation in component composition. Two different German and Polish cultivars each, as well as fruits from Hungary and Bulgaria have been compared with respect to their ratio of… (More)
The effects of indomethacin on intestine mucosal cAMP, intestinal fluid secretion, and mucosal and fluid PGE were studied in rabbits in vivo following challenge with cholera toxin. Indomethacin had no effect on cholera toxin-induced fluid secretion or cAMP accumulation. Inhibition of PGE synthesis was achieved by the administration of two but not one… (More)
