Keratan sulphate levels in mucopolysaccharidoses and mucolipidoses
TLDR
The finding suggests that measurement of KS level provides a new diagnostic biomarker in a wide variety of mucopolysaccharidoses and mucolipidoses in addition to MPS IV, in contrast to the conventional understanding. Expand
Glycosaminoglycans of the hemodialysis-associated carpal synovial amyloid and of amyloid-rich tissues and fibrils of heart, liver, and spleen.
TLDR
Using two-dimensional electrophoresis to fractionate GAG mixtures, the GAGs of the fibrils from carpal synovium of patients with amyloid associated with chronic hemodialysis are quantified and identified for the first time. Expand
The acidic glycosaminoglycans in leukocytes: an application of enzymatic methods.
TLDR
The present studies showed that the content of chondroitin 4-sulfate, hyaluronic acid, and heparan sulfates in leukocyte AGAG is 75-80%, 10-15%, and approximately lo%, respectively. Expand
The role of transferrin and ferritin in the fetal-maternal-placental unit.
TLDR
Ferritin was shown to be present in all layers of the trophoblast and especially in the Syncytiotrophoblast, and transferrin was localized on the site facing the intervillous space, on the surface of the microvilli of the syncyTiotrophoblasts. Expand
Accumulated lipids, aberrant fatty acid composition and defective cholesterol ester hydrolase activity in cholesterol ester storage disease
TLDR
Results suggest that accumulated cholesterol esters were derived mainly from serum LDL and that the accumulation resulted from lack of acid cholesterol ester hydrolase. Expand
Studies on the placental transport mechanism for iron.
TLDR
Results indicate that iron is transferred from the mother to the fetus by the placental active function, and Tf receptor and Fr on trophoblasts participate in the adequate placental iron transport. Expand
Purification and characterization of a high-molecular-weight protease, ingensin, from human placenta.
TLDR
A subcellular fractionation study showed that a large amount of ingensin activity was present in the cytosol or microsome fraction rather than in the precipitate of low-speed centrifugation, and the effect of protease inhibitors on the activated ingenin was also investigated. Expand
Microheterogeneity of chondroitin sulfates from various cartilages.
TLDR
Structural studies on these tetrasaccharides showed that one of them is a hybrid consisting of the 4- and 6-sulfated residues, and a nomenclature for chondroitin sulfates is discussed. Expand
Studies on the disaccharide subunits of chondroitin sulfates in human plasma.
TLDR
The finding indicates the presence of under-sulfated and oversulfated chondroitin sulfate isomers in human plasma and the heterogeneous structures of plasma chond Detroitin sulfates in terms of the degree of sulfation. Expand
[Studies on hypogeusia in hyperemesis gravidarum].
TLDR
The results suggested that the gustatory test was helpful in investigating hyperemesis gravidarum and that biological defense systems (scavenger systems) to free radicals were damaged in patients with hyperemicably ill patients. Expand
