Extracellular storage of thyroglobulin (TG) is an important prerequisite for maintaining constant levels of thyroid hormones in vertebrates. Storage of large amounts is made possible by compactation of TG in the follicle lumen with concentrations of at least 100-400 mg/ml. We recently observed that the luminal content from bovine thyroids can be isolated in(More)
We report the chemo-enzymatic synthesis of three cellobiono-1,5-lactone azido derivatives, designed as building blocks for biomedical polymer scaffolds. The synthesis is based on regioselective protection of cellobiose or 1,6-O-anhydro-β-d-cellobiose before azidation and subsequent deprotection. The oxidation to the corresponding cellobiono-1,5-lactones was(More)
