Recognition Mechanism of Galectin-4 for Cholesterol 3-Sulfate*
TLDR
Results suggested that not only sulfated glycosphingolipids but also cholesterol 3-sulfate are endogenous ligands for galectin-4 in vivo. Expand
Specificity of human galectins on cell surfaces
TLDR
It is concluded that competitive interaction of galectins with cell microenvironment (endogenous cell glycans) is the main factor providing selectivity of galECTins in vivo. Expand
Structural characterisation of human galectin-4 N-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain in complex with glycerol, lactose, 3′-sulfo-lactose, and 2′-fucosyllactose
TLDR
The X-ray structures of human galectin-4 N-terminal CRD (galect in-4N) bound to different saccharide ligands are presented to help decipher its roles under specific conditions. Expand
Galectin-1 signaling in leukocytes requires expression of complex-type N-glycans.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that dGal-1 preferentially binds to and signals through glycoproteins containing complex-type N-glycans in at least some leukocyte subsets. Expand
Ganglioside GM1/Galectin-Dependent Growth Regulation in Human Neuroblastoma Cells: Special Properties of Bivalent Galectin-4 and Significance of Linker Length for Ligand Selection
TLDR
Complete functional divergence between galectins is revealed, differing in the spatial mode of lectin-site presentation and dependence of reactivity to distinct counter-receptor(s) on linker length, which indicates the potential for a distinct functionality profile of this lectin in vivo. Expand
Human tandem-repeat-type galectins bind bacterial non-βGal polysaccharides
TLDR
This work established the array as valuable screening tool, giving direction to further functional and structural studies, and addressed the question whether sugar determinants other than β-galactosides may be docking sites, using human galectins-4, -8, and -9. Expand
Different affinity of galectins for human serum glycoproteins: galectin-3 binds many protease inhibitors and acute phase proteins.
TLDR
New insight is given into function of galectins and the role of their different fine specificity giving differential binding to the serum glycoproteins. Expand
Glycan Chains of Gangliosides: Functional Ligands for Tissue Lectins (Siglecs/Galectins).
TLDR
Glycans of gangliosides such as GD1a and GM1 are functional counterreceptors by a pairing with tissue lectins, an emerging aspect ofganglioside and lectin functionality. Expand
Noble tandem-repeat galectin of Manila clam Ruditapes philippinarum is induced upon infection with the protozoan parasite Perkinsus olseni.
TLDR
Noble galectin (MCGal) was cloned from the marine invertebrate Ruditapes philippinarum and characterized, and Carbohydrate recognition by the recombinant MCGal (rMCGal), as determined by hapten inhibition of hemagglutination, revealed that rMCGal has features common to the galECTin family, i.e., significant affinity for galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine.

The N-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain of galectin-8 recognizes specific glycosphingolipids with high affinity.
TLDR
This is the first demonstration that galectin-8 binds to specific sulfated or sialylated glycosphingolipids with high affinity, indicating that this Gln47 plays important roles for binding to Neu5Acalpha2-->3Gal or SO3--->3Gal residues. Expand
Concomitant increases in galectin-1 and its glycoconjugate ligands (carcinoembryonic antigen, lamp-1, and lamp-2) in cultured human colon carcinoma cells by sodium butyrate.
TLDR
Results indicate that galectin-1 expression may be associated with the differentiation of KM12 cells and that several glycoproteins shown to be important in colon carcinoma adhesion and metastasis are capable of functioning as its endogenous ligands. Expand
High-affinity binding of recombinant human galectin-4 to SO3–→3Galβ1→3GalNAc pyranoside
Galectin-4 is a member of galectin family and has two carbohydrate recognition domains. Although galectin-4 has been thought to function in cell adhesion, its precise carbohydrate binding specificityExpand
Carcinoembryonic antigen and other glycoconjugates act as ligands for galectin-3 in human colon carcinoma cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that galectin-3 interacts with several adhesion molecules and suggest that this lectin may have a role in human colon carcinoma cell adhesion. Expand
Adhesion of Bordetella pertussis to sulfatides and to the GalNAc beta 4Gal sequence found in glycosphingolipids.
TLDR
The adherence of the human respiratory pathogen, Bordetella pertussis, to purified glycosphingolipids was investigated using thin layer chromatography overlay assays and it is suggested that the minimum sugar structure needed for avid bacterial binding is GalNAc beta 4Gal. Expand
Sulfated glycolipids are ligands for a lymphocyte homing receptor, L-selectin (LECAM-1), Binding epitope in sulfated sugar chain.
TLDR
Lower reactivity of the chimera to SO3-3Glc-rather than SO3 -3Gal- indicates that the chimERA recognizes the configuration of hydroxyl group linked to the 4 carbon atom of the pyranose ring in galactose. Expand
Galectin-1 Is a Major Receptor for Ganglioside GM1, a Product of the Growth-controlling Activity of a Cell Surface Ganglioside Sialidase, on Human Neuroblastoma Cells in Culture*
TLDR
The results open the possibility that the carbohydrate-dependent interaction between ganglioside GM1 and galectin-1 may relay sialidase-dependent alterations in this cell system. Expand
Monoclonal antibodies directed to a disulfated glycosphingolipid, SB1a (GgOse4Cer-II3IV3-bis-sulfate), associated with human hepatocellular carcinoma.
TLDR
Results strongly suggest that the SB1a antigen as defined by these new monoclonal antibodies is associated with human hepatocellular carcinoma. Expand
Release of carcinoembryonic antigen from human tumor cells by phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C: highly effective extraction and upregulation from LS-174T colonic adenocarcinoma cells.
TLDR
Growing LS-174T cells constitute an effective material for producing high quantities of CEA by PI-PLC cleavage, especially since these cells probably "regenerate" because of enhanced turnover during PI- PLC action, thus allowing continuous CEA production. Expand
Carbohydrate structures of a normal counterpart of the carcinoembryonic antigen produced by colon epithelial cells of normal adults.
TLDR
The structures of the oligosaccharides released from four NFA-2 samples by hydrazinolysis were studied by means of lectin-affinity column chromatography, endo- and exo-glycosidase digestion, methylation analysis, hydrazinlysis-nitrous acid deamination and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry.
