BACKGROUND & AIMS Fetuin-A (α2HS-glycoprotein), a liver secretory glycoprotein, is known as a transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 signalling inhibitor. Serum fetuin-A concentration is associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and cardiovascular disease. However, the usefulness of serum fetuin-A as a predictive fibrosis biomarker in NAFLD(More)
PURPOSE Mac-2 binding protein (Mac-2 bp) is one of the major fucosylated glycoproteins, which we identified with glycol-proteomic analyses. We previously reported that fucosylated glycoproteins are secreted into bile, but scarcely secreted into sera in normal liver and hypothesized that the fucosylation-based sorting machinery would be disrupted in(More)
AIM Glycosylation changes induce various types of biological phenomena in human diseases. N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT-V) is one of the most important glycosyltransferases involved in cancer biology. Recently, many researchers have challenged studies of lipid metabolism in cancer. To elucidate the relationships between cancer and lipid metabolism(More)
N‑Acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT‑V) catalyzes β1‑6 branching in asparagine‑linked oligosaccharides and is one of the most important glycosyltransferases involved in carcinogenesis, cancer metastasis and immunity. To investigate the biological functions of GnT‑V, the present study developed GnT‑V transgenic (Tg) mice and the role of GnT‑V in(More)
Glycosylation is involved in various pathophysiological conditions. N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT-V), catalyzing β1-6 branching in asparagine-linked oligosaccharides, is one of the most important glycosyltransferases involved in cancer and the immune system. Recent findings indicate that aberrant N-glycan structure can modify lipid metabolism. In(More)
