Sequential treatment of trophozoite membranes with the nonionic detergents Brij 35 and Igepal CA-630 released a soluble fraction that efficiently catalyzed the transfer of mannose from GDP-Man into a mannolipid that was identified as dolichol phosphate mannose (Dol-P-Man) by several criteria. The transfer reaction occurred only in the presence of(More)
Sequential incubation of a mixed membrane fraction isolated from Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites with the nonionic detergents Brij 35 and Igepal CA-630 rendered a soluble fraction with the ability to transfer N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) from UDP-GlcNAc to dolichol phosphate to form a lipid saccharide that was identified as a mixture of(More)
AIMS To determine the levels of IgG class antibodies to recombinant heat shock protein 60 kDa of Yersinia enterocolitica (rHSP60Ye), Klebsiella pneumoniae (rHSP60Kp), Escherichia coli (rHSP60Ec), Shigella flexneri (rHSP60Sf), and Streptococcus pyogenes (rHSP60Sp) in the serum of patients with HLA-B27 associated acute anterior uveitis (HLA-B27 associated(More)
A mixed membrane fraction isolated from C. albicans yeast cells catalyzed the transfer of glucose from UDP-Glc into three classes of endogenous acceptors: glucolipid, glycoprotein and lipid-linked oligosaccharides. About 80μ of the total radioactivity transferred into these products corresponded to the glucolipid which was identified as dolichol phosphate(More)
