We previously described a diverse family of sulfated anionic N-linked oligosaccharides released by peptide: N-glycosidase F (PNGaseF) from calf pulmonary artery endothelial (CPAE) cells (Roux, L., Holoyda, S., Sundblad, G., Freeze, H.H., and Varki, A. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 8879-8889). Since a major fraction of the intact lung consists of endothelial(More)
Pigmented melanoma cells and cultured melanocytes express a differentiation-related glycoprotein designated as pigmentation-associated antigen (PAA) of Mr 70,000-80,000. As described previously, PAA was initially defined by reactivity with antibodies in the serum of a patient with melanoma. Here we describe the production and characterization of a mouse(More)
The structures of sulfated N-linked oligosaccharides have been reported for a few specific proteins. We recently demonstrated that such oligosaccharides occur in many different types of tissue culture cell lines (Freeze, H. H., and Varki, A. (1986) Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 140, 967-973). Here we report improved methods to metabolically label cell(More)
1. At least 95% of the total protein of A31-3T3 cell cultures undergoes turnover. 2. First-order exponential kinetics were used to provide a crude approximation of averaged protein synthesis, Ks, degradation, Kd, and net accumulation, Ka, as cells ceased growth at near-confluent density in unchanged Dulbecco's medium containing 10% serum. The values of the(More)
Pigmentation-associated antigen (PAA) or gp75 is a glycoprotein localized to the melanosomes of human melanomas and melanocytes to which a mouse monoclonal antibody (AbTA99) has been produced (T. M. Thomson et al. (1985) J. Invest. Dermatol. 85, 169). Treatment of 3H-labeled immunoprecipitated melanoma PAA with alkaline-borohydride, hydrazinolysis, or(More)
Expression of aversive memories is key for survival, but the underlying brain mechanisms are not fully understood. Medial habenular (MHb) axons corelease glutamate and acetylcholine onto target postsynaptic interpeduncular (IPN) neurons, but their role in aversive memories has not been addressed so far. We found that cannabinoid type 1 receptors (CB1R), key(More)
In the preceding paper (Roux, L., Holojda, S., Sundblad, G., Freeze, H. H., and Varki, A. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 8879-8889) we described the metabolic labeling and isolation of sulfated N-linked oligosaccharides from mammalian cell lines. All cell lines studied contained a class of sulfated sialylated complex-type chains with 2-6 negative charges. In(More)
