Cell surface glycoconjugates are thought to mediate cell-cell recognition and play roles in neuronal development and functions. We demonstrated here that exposure of neuronal cells to nanomolar levels of gangliosides Neu5Acalpha 8Neu5Acalpha 3Galbeta 4GlcCer, Galbeta 3GalNAcbeta 4(Neu5Acalpha 8Neu5Acalpha 3)Galbeta 4GlcCer (GD1b), Neu5Acalpha 3Galbeta(More)
It has been well confirmed ox-LDL plays key roles in the development of atherosclerosis via binding to LOX-1 and inducing apoptosis in vascular endothelial cells. Recent studies have shown ox-LDL can suppress microRNA has-let-7g, which in turn inhibits the ox-LDL induced apoptosis. However, details need to be uncovered. To determine the anti-atherosclerosis(More)
Cell surface glycoconjugates are thought to mediate cell-cell recognition and to play roles in neuronal development and functions. We demonstrated here that exposure of neuronal cells to nanomolar levels of glyco-chains with an N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residue at the non-reducing termini (GalNAc-S) such as GalNAcbeta4(Neu5Acalpha3)Galbeta4GlcCer (GM2)(More)
