Similar changes in glycosylation occur in the colonic epithelium in inflammatory conditions such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease and also in colon cancer and precancerous adenomatous polyps. They include reduced length of O-glycans, reduced sulfation, increased sialylation and increased expression of oncofetal carbohydrate antigens, such as sialyl-Tn (sialylalpha2-6GalNAc), and the TF antigen (Thomsen-Friedenreich antigen) Galbeta1-3GalNAcalpha-Ser/Thr. The changes affect cell surface… Expand
Glycosylation and Disease
TLDR
Variation in sequence, linkage and substitution of carbohdrates in a glycan means that a relatively short glycan can have many more variations (glycoforms) than a peptide with an equivalent number of amino acids. Expand
Mucosal Barrier, Bacteria and Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Possibilities for Therapy
TLDR
The mucosal barrier is critically important in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and patients are advised to avoid processed foods containing emulsifiers and to rinse their dishes well - whilst accepting that there is no direct evidence yet to support this. Expand
Cancer vaccines and carbohydrate epitopes.
TLDR
The role of each of the above mentioned carbohydrate antIGens in cancer growth and metastasis and vaccine attempts using these antigens will be described. Expand
Mechanisms of cancer-associated glycosylation changes.
TLDR
Some of the most relevant cancer-associated carbohydrate structures, including the β1,6-branching of N-linked chains, the sialyl Lewis antigens, the α2, 6-sialylated lactosamine, the Thomsen-Friedenreich-related antigen and gangliosides are discussed. Expand
Peanut agglutinin appearance in the blood circulation after peanut ingestion mimics the action of endogenous galectin-3 to promote metastasis by interaction with cancer-associated MUC1.
TLDR
Effects of PNA at concentrations similar to those found in blood circulation after peanut ingestion increases cancer cell heterotypic adhesion to the blood vascular endothelium and enhances the formation of tumour cell homotypic aggregates, two important steps in the metastasis cascade. Expand
The Vat‐AIEC protease promotes crossing of the intestinal mucus layer by Crohn's disease‐associated Escherichia coli
TLDR
A protease called Vat‐AIEC from AIEC is reported that favours the mucosa colonization and a new component of AIEC virulence that might favour their implantation in the gut of CD patients is revealed. Expand
Dairy propionibacteria prevent the proliferative effect of plant lectins on SW480 cells and protect the metabolic activity of the intestinal microbiota in vitro.
TLDR
The results suggest that consumption of propionibacteria at the same time as lectins could reduce the incidence of lectin-induced alterations in the gut and may be a tool to protect intestinal physiology. Expand
Mucosal barrier, bacteria and IBD: possibilities for therapy
TLDR
Pyer’s patches are commonly the sites of the initial lesions in CD and the “anti-pancreatic” antibody associated with CD has been shown to have as its epitope the GP2 glycoprotein that is the receptor for type-1 bacterial fimbrial protein (fimH) on M cells. Expand
Immunohistochemical Studies on Galectin Expression in Colectomised Patients with Ulcerative Colitis
TLDR
Galectin expression in patients with UC seems to be more dependent on disease focality and individual variation than on degree of tissue inflammation, and no clear-cut correlation between epithelial galECTin expression and severity of the disease was found. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that expression of the PNA receptor, TF antigen, by hyperplastic or neoplastic colonic epithelium may affect cell proliferation. Expand
Altered lectin binding by colonic epithelial glycoconjugates in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease
TLDR
An abnormality in epithelial cell glycoconjugates seems to be commonly present in nondysplastic mucosa and occurs in both ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, which may reflect a fundamental abnormalities in mucus glycoprotein synthesis in inflammatory bowel disease. Expand
Peanut lectin stimulates proliferation of colon cancer cells by interaction with glycosylated CD44v6 isoforms and consequential activation of c-Met and MAPK: functional implications for disease-associated glycosylation changes.
TLDR
The expression of TF antigen by CD44 isoforms in colonic epithelial cells allows lectin-induced mitogenesis that is mediated by phosphorylation of c-Met and MAPK, which provides a mechanism by which dietary, microbial, or endogenous galactose-binding lectins could affect epithelial proliferation in the cancerous and precancerous colon. Expand
Direct demonstration of increased expression of Thomsen-Friedenreich (TF) antigen in colonic adenocarcinoma and ulcerative colitis mucin and its concealment in normal mucin.
TLDR
TF antigen is an oncofetal antigen which is expressed in colon cancer, but is concealed by further glycosylation (sialylation and/or fucosylation) in the normal colonic mucosa. Expand
Peanut lectin stimulates proliferation in colonic explants from patients with inflammatory bowel disease and colon polyps.
TLDR
Increased TF expression by premalignant epithelia may allow stimulation of proliferation by dietary galactose N-acetylgalactosamine-binding lectins, which could explain the increased colon cancer risk in ulcerative colitis. Expand

TLDR
The cytologic localization of TAg by PNA corresponds to the cells' ability to produce mucin goblets, and most adenomas consist of goblet cells, localize TAg to the stalk, and probably make complete MN glycoprotein as does normal colonic epithelium. Expand
Mucin‐type O‐glycans in human colon and breast cancer: glycodynamics and functions
TLDR
This review focuses on the glycosyltransferases of colon and breast cancer cells that determine the pathways of mucin‐type O‐glycosylation, and the proposed functional and pathological consequences of altered O-glycans. Expand
Peanut ingestion increases rectal proliferation in individuals with mucosal expression of peanut lectin receptor.
TLDR
The common expression of galactose beta 1,3-N-acetyl galactosamine alpha- by hyperplastic and neoplastic epithelia may be functionally important because it allows interaction with mitogenic dietary lectins. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of the mucins confirmed >90% purity in the labelling experiments, characteristic behaviour on density gradient centrifugation and agarose gel electrophoresis in control and ulcerative colitis groups and differences in sulfation and turnover at various sites in the normal colon. Expand
