The ceramide glycanase (CGase) activities, which cleave the intact oligosaccharide chain and the ceramide moiety of a glycosphingolipid, have been characterized from two mammalian sources. The enzymatic activities are almost comparable in rabbit and rat mammary tissues. The majority of the activities has been concentrated in the soluble fraction which could(More)
A ceramide glycanase (CGase activity has been characterized from lactating rat mammary tissue which cleaves the glycosidic bond between sphingosine and the glucose chain of a glycosphingolipid (GSL) thus liberating the intact oligosaccharide chain from a GSL. The majority (65%) of the hydrolase activity was detected in the supernatant fraction when the rat(More)
The SAT-3 activity (CMP-NeuAc:Gal beta 1-4GlcNAc beta 1-3 Gal beta 1-4Glc-ceramide alpha 2-3 sialytransferase) involved in the biosynthesis of sialy Le(x) has been characterized in human colon carcinoma cells and embryonic chicken brains. Using RT-PCR-based strategy, we have isolated partial cDNA clones of SAT-3 from ECB and Colo-205 mRNAs. Suitable primers(More)
Acidic glycolipid of ganglio-(containing sialic acid) and sialyl-lactofucosyl-type, SA-Lex (containing sialic acid and fucose) are developmentally regulated and appear to be ubiquitous on neuronal and cancer cell surfaces of animals. Two glycolipid: beta-galactosyltransferases, GalT-3 and GalT-4, were characterized in embryonic chicken brain (ECB). Based on(More)
A β1-3 galactosyltransferase (GalT-3; UDP-Gal; GM2 β1-3galactosyltransferase) was purified over 5100-fold from 19-day-old embryonic chicken brain homogenate employing detergent solubilization, α-lactalbumin Sepharose, Q-Sepharose, UDP-hexanolamine Sepharose, and GalNAcβ1-4Galβ-Synsorb column chromatography. The purified enzyme was resolved into two bands on(More)
