The granulomatous pathology in human intestinal schistosomiasis is induced primarily by the egg antigens of schistosome, a parasitic trematode. Glycolipids and glycoproteins were extracted from the eggs of the two major species which infect human, Schistosoma mansoni and Schistosoma japonicum, for structural characterization based on highly sensitive mass spectrometric analysis coupled with chemical derivatization. Here, we demonstrate that a series of uniquely multifucosylated… CONTINUE READING
