Recently, we found that human anti-GlcNAc mAbs reacted with keratin from human skin and recognized specific peptide epitopes of human cytokeratin 14. Our data demonstrate that anti-keratin Ab responses in mice might be driven by Ags bearing terminal O-linked GlcNAc residues. To determine if mouse anti-GlcNAc mAbs recognized peptide epitopes of keratin, several mouse anti-GlcNAc mAbs were reacted with a panel of overlapping synthetic decapeptides of the entire amino acid sequence of human… Expand
Cytokeratin 8 and 19 as antigens recognized by adenocarcinoma-reactive human monoclonal antibody AE6F4.
TLDR
The results suggest that the MAb AE6F4 reacts with both carbohydrate and peptide antigenic determinants, which is strongly reactive to lung cancer tissues. Expand
ANTIBODIES FROM PATIENTS WITH PSORIASIS RECOGNIzE N‐ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE TERMINALS IN GLYCOPROTEINS FROM PITYROSPORUM OVALE
TLDR
The results are indicative that the antibody response to PO100 and PO120 in patients with psoriasis is directed towards terminal GlcNAc residues. Expand
Antigenic and immunological mimicry of peptide mimotopes of Lewis carbohydrate antigens.
TLDR
The results indicate that mapping peptide epitopes with anti-carbohydrate antibodies can lend to defining antibody fine specificities that can go undetected by screening of carbohydrate antigens alone, and confirm that peptides and carbohydrates can bind to the same antibody binding site. Expand
Molecular analysis of cross-reactive anti-myosin/anti-streptococcal mouse monoclonal antibodies.
TLDR
Antibodies with V gene sequences most homologous to those of the cross-reactive anti-myosin/anti-streptococcal mAbs had specificities for laminin, DNA, carbohydrates, or blood group antigens and were reported to cause autoimmune disease in mice. Expand
Recognition of an octapeptide sequence by multiple Galα(1,3)Gal‐binding proteins
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a synthetic octapeptide, Gal pep 1 (DAHWESWL), isolated from a peptide epitope library using the α‐galactosyl specific lectin IB4, “mimics” the carbohydrate epitope Galα(1,3)Gal, and could theoretically be used to block hyperacute rejection. Expand
Identification of pentadecapeptide mimicking muramyl peptide.
TLDR
Results indicate that RN-peptide mimicks the spatial structure of intact GMDP, which is critical for the biological activity of muramyl peptides. Expand
The p68 autoantigen characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis is reactive with carbohydrate epitope specific autoantibodies
TLDR
It is hypothesised that a shift in glycosylation pattern accompanied by an unphysiological localisation of the antigen could trigger antigenicity of p68 during the pathogenesis of RA. Expand
Peptide Mimicry of Streptococcal Group A Carbohydrate
TLDR
This chapter explores the immunochemical relationships, as defined by antibodies, between the cell wall polysaccharide of Streptococcus pyogenes (group A streptococci) and peptides and investigates peptide mimicry of GAC with respect to five GAC-specific monoclonal antibodies. Expand
Molecular analysis of polyreactive monoclonal antibodies from rheumatic carditis: human anti-N-acetylglucosamine/anti-myosin antibody V region genes.
TLDR
The anti-myosin mAbs from rheumatic carditis were found to react with specific peptides from the light meromyosin region of the human cardiac myosin molecule, which was strongly reactive with N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosamine, the dominant epitope of the group A streptococcal carbohydrate. Expand
Immunological relationship between the class I epitope of streptococcal M protein and myosin.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the class I epitope of M protein is immunologically cross-reactive with myosin and the HMM subfragment, and antibodies to peptide C3 and myOSin were present in ARF and UNC sera. Expand
