Both isoforms of human UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase are enzymatically active.
Being recognized as an important constituent of the glycoprotein folding cycle, uridine diphosphate-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGGT) has been a subject of intense study. Up to now, itExpand

Functional analysis of endoplasmic reticulum glucosyltransferase (UGGT): Synthetic chemistry's initiative in glycobiology.
UGGT1 is called as a folding sensor protein that recognizes misfolded glycoproteins and selectively glucosylates high-mannose-type glycans on the proteins. However, conventional approaches usingExpand

Association of Oral Fat Sensitivity with Body Mass Index, Taste Preference, and Eating Habits in Healthy Japanese Young Adults.
Oral fat sensitivity (OFS, the ability to detect fat) may be related to overeating-induced obesity. However, it is largely unknown whether OFS affects taste preference and eating habits. Therefore,Expand

Polyamine Concentrations in the Brain of Vitamin B12-Deficient Rats
To study the pathophysiology of the neuronal degeneration in vitamin B12 deficiency, we investigated the concentrations of the polyamines putrescine, spermidine, and spermine in brain regions andExpand

Efficient and stereoselective 1,2-cis glycoside formation of 5-thioaldopyranoses: glycosylation with peracetylated 5-thio-D- arabinopyranosyl and 5-thio-L-fucopyranosyl trichloroacetimidates
Abstract Trichloroacetimidate method was proved to be effective for 5-thio- D -arabinopyranosylation and 5-thio- L -fucopyranosylation of N -acetyl- D -glucosaminides and D -galactosides. In theseExpand

Expression of α2,8/2,9-Polysialyltransferase fromEscherichia coli K92
The capsular polysaccharide of Escherichia coli K92 contains alternating -8-NeuAcα2- and -9-NeuAcα2- linkages. The enzyme catalyzing this polymerizing reaction has been cloned from the genomic DNA ofExpand

Monitoring of Glycoprotein Quality Control System with a Series of Chemically Synthesized Homogeneous Native and Misfolded Glycoproteins.
The glycoprotein quality control (GQC) system in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) effectively uses chaperone-type enzymes and lectins such as UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGGT),Expand
