Glycosylated proteins on the cell surface have been shown to be essential for cell-cell interactions in development and differentiation. Our ultimate goal is to identify Asn-linked oligosaccharides that are directly involved in these critical in vivo functions. Because such oligosaccharides would be expected to reside on the integral plasma membrane(More)
We have identified and characterized three missense mutations in a patient with type 1 G(M1) gangliosidosis, namely a substitution of G for A at nucleotide position 1044 (G1044-->A; in exon 10) on one allele, which converts Asp(332) into asparagine, and both a mutation (C492-->A in exon 4, leading to the amino acid change of Arg(148)-->Ser) and a(More)
Glycosylation is one of the most common post-translational protein modifications. Carbohydrate-mediated interactions between cells and their environment are important in differentiation, embryogenesis, inflammation, cancer and metastasis and other processes. Humans and mice with mutations that prevent normal N-glycosylation show multi-systemic defects in(More)
Lysosomes are essential for normal function of cells. This is best illustrated by the occurrence of greater than 40 lysosomal storage diseases. While the enzymes of the luminal compartment have been widely studied usually in the context of these diseases, the composition of the enveloping membrane has received scant attention. Advances in mass spectrometry(More)
