  • We aimed to evaluate the potential of the well-established melanoma antigen chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4 (CSPG4) as an inducible antigen in ovarian cancer cells, using CSPG4-negative SKOV-3 ovarian cancer cells as a model. (uni-regensburg.de)
  • Their protein backbones are linked to different glycosaminoglycans, such as dermatan-, chondroitin-, keratan- or heparan sulphate. (lu.se)
  • Inhibition of attachment of glycosaminoglycans to the core proteins of proteoglycans by beta-d-xylosides also reduced incorporation of LTBP1 into the ECM. (wisc.edu)
  • Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are oligosaccharide components of proteoglycans (macromolecules that provide structural integrity and function to connective tissues). (medscape.com)
  • Taken together our observations suggest that local divergences in the concentration/assembly of low and high molecular mass proteins and proteoglycans of the ECM encountered by the moving neural crest cells account for their disparate migratory behavior in the white mutant axolotl. (mpg.de)
  • OBJECTIVES: The expression patterns of various cell-associated heparan and chondroitin/dermatan-sulphate PGs in human skin and chronic venous ulcers were investigated. (lu.se)
  • Binding is mediated by VAR2CSA, a parasite antigen coded by the var gene, which interacts with chondroitin sulfate A (CSA). (cdc.gov)
  • An injectable solution containing chondroitin sulfate and sodium hyaluronate is approved by the FDA to protect the eye during cataract surgery. (medlineplus.gov)
  • Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM provides a popular and effective combination of natural ingredients formulated to support the structure and function of healthy joints. (greatearthtorrance.com)
  • Sequestration of infected erythrocytes in the placenta is mediated by VAR2CSA, the P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 variant that binds to chondroitin sulfate A (CSA) on the syncytiotrophoblast ( 11 , 12 ). (cdc.gov)
  • These GAG bristles allow the proteoglycan molecule to soak up water like a little sponge. (vin.com)
  • Chondroitin sulfate is possibly safe when used together with other ingredients in an eye drop. (medlineplus.gov)
  • The full clinical benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin got many good feedback and many scientific studies which indicate that these ingredients can relieve joint pain and may help to reverse joint degeneration. (naturalpet.com.sg)
  • NOW Extra Strength Glucosamine & Chondroitin combines two well-known joint support ingredients in their sulfate forms. (goisco.com)
  • Chondroitin sulfate helps inhibit enzymes such as collagenase, elastase, and proteoglycans that can become overactive in joint degeneration, compromising the integrity of these tissues. (greenwellnesslife.com)
  • 2] Aging and degeneration have in common decreased water and proteoglycan content in the disks, combined with increased collagen. (medscape.com)
  • In 1976, the enzyme deficiency in Morquio syndrome type IVA (galactosamine-6-sulfatase deficiency [ie, N -acetyl-galactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase deficiency]) was identified. (medscape.com)
  • Chondroitin sulfate is also used for many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. (medlineplus.gov)
  • Treatment of primary osteoblast cultures with heparin or heparin-BSA but not with chondroitin sulfate impaired LTBP1 deposition onto fibronectin without inhibiting expression of LTBP1. (wisc.edu)
  • These studies suggest that heparan sulfate proteoglycans may play a critical role in regulating TGF-beta availability by controlling the deposition of LTBP1 into the ECM in association with fibronectin. (wisc.edu)
  • However, until more is known, do not take chondroitin sulfate if you have prostate cancer or are at high risk for developing it (you have a brother or father with prostate cancer). (medlineplus.gov)
