  • structures
  • The structures of the bacterial capsular polysaccharide (CPS) antigens, extracted and purified from microbial cultures and obtained with very high purity, show that many of them are decorated by O-acetyl groups. (mdpi.com)
  • In the review the infectious diseases have been discussed where the mimicry phenomenon may occurr, and also autoimmune disease where due to the molecular mimicry bacterial structures are potent to induce adverse immune reactions. (edu.pl)
  • vaccines
  • Thus, a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the generation, ontogeny, production, and selection of B cells bearing Abs with Ag binding sites specific to polysaccharides and T-independent Ags is needed to optimize the design and ontogenetic timing of vaccines directed against pathogens bearing these types of immunodominant Ags.

  • carbohydrates
  • Polysaccharide is any of a class of relatively complex, high-molecular weight carbohydrates consisting of long-chains of many monosaccharides joined together by glycosidic bonds. (newworldencyclopedia.org)
  • Polysaccharides are one of four classes of carbohydrates , which in turn are biological molecules that contain primarily carbon (C) atoms flanked by hydrogen (H) atoms and hydroxyl (OH) groups (H-C-OH). (newworldencyclopedia.org)
  • Intended for researchers in biochemistry, medicine, nutrition and industry, this book discusses such topics as components of bacterial polysaccharides, fluorinated carbohydrates, and carbon sugars chemistry. (elsevier.com)
  • fungal
  • Here, we demonstrate that a fungal CDH from Myriococcum thermophilum (MtCDH), can act as an electron donor for bacterial family AA10 LPMOs. (sigmaaldrich.com)

  • 2004) Polysaccharide intercellular adhesin (PIA) protects Staphylococcus epidermidis against major components of the human innate immune system. (springer.com)
  • developmental
  • As an exclusively human pathogen it is the main cause of bacterial meningitis in children and young adults, causing developmental impairment and death in about 10% of cases. (wikipedia.org)
