  • synthesis
  • an immunoglobulin molecule having a specific amino acid sequence that gives each antibody the ability to adhere to and interact only with the antigen that induced its synthesis. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Immunoglobulin molecules having a specific amino acid sequence by virtue of which they interact only with the ANTIGEN (or a very similar shape) that induced their synthesis in cells of the lymphoid series (especially PLASMA CELLS). (healthmatics.info)
  • GalNAc
  • Namely, the A allele encodes A transferase, which transfers a GalNAc to the H antigen. (google.com)
  • Human blood type-A-hexasaccharide (GalNAcα1-3(Fucα1-2)Galβ1-4GlcNAcβ1-4Galβ1-4Glc) was found to exhibit the strongest ligand binding to the galectin while Forssman antigen (GalNAcα1-3GalNAcβ1-3Galα1- 4Galβ1-4Glc) and type-A-tetrasaccharide (GalNAcα1-3(Fucα1-2)Galβ1-4GlcNAcβ1-4Glc) were also extensively recognized.

  • immune
  • The branch of biomedicine concerned with the structure and function of the immune system, innate and acquired immunity, the bodily distinction of self from nonself, and laboratory techniques involving the interaction of antigens with specific antibodies. (northamericanpharmacal.com)
  • membrane
  • ABO blood group, the major human blood group system, dependent on the presence or absence of A and B antigens, which are largely glycolipids on the cell membrane. (tripod.com)
  • immunology
  • Two chapters are concerned with current topics in cellular immunology: the antigen receptor site and the cellular basis of memory. (annals.org)
  • glycolipids
  • Strains that carry these genes may have the capability of synthesizing mimics of the P blood group antigens of the globoseries glycolipids. (gc.ca)
  • determinant
  • The binding patterns observed indicate that the presence of β1-linked galactosyl residues in glycosphingolipids is the minimum determinant required for binding of the pH 6 antigen. (asm.org)
  • The pH 6 antigen was first identified as a virulence determinant when derivatives of Y. pestis lacking the pH 6 antigen showed reduced virulence in mice ( 1 ). (asm.org)
  • macrophages
  • The pH 6 antigen expressed on bacteria released from these macrophages might facilitate the colonization of other cell types and might also contribute to the delivery of Yops into these cells, by promoting bacterium-host cell contact ( 16 ). (asm.org)
  • assay
  • By an enzyme-linked immunosorbence-based assay, purified pH 6 antigen bound to gangliotetraosylceramide (GM1A), gangliotriaosylceramide (GM2A), and lactosylceramide (LC) (designations follow the nomenclature of L. Svennerholm [J. Neurochem. (asm.org)
  • Intact E. coli cells which expressed the pH 6 antigen had a specificity similar to that of purified pH 6 in the TLC overlay assay except that nonhydroxylated galactosylceramide was also bound. (asm.org)
  • encodes
  • A cosmid containing a 42-kbp DNA fragment which encodes PsaA and accessory loci necessary for pH 6 antigen biosynthesis (pDG1) has previously been cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli ( 6 , 7 ). (asm.org)
