  • Carbohydrate Structure Database (CSDB) is a free database and service platform in glycoinformatics, launched in 2005 by a group of Russian scientists from N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to Oxford English Dictionary the specific term glycobiology was coined in 1988 by Prof. Raymond Dwek to recognize the coming together of the traditional disciplines of carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry. (wikipedia.org)
  • SweetDB
  • In the late 1990s the SweetDB project started to make data from the (at that time discontinued) Complex Carbohydrate Structure Database / CarbBank available over the internet and to link 3D-models of the carbohydrates calculated with Sweet-II to the corresponding entries. (glycosciences.de)
  • Cells
  • The name "peanut agglutinin" originates from its ability to stick together (agglutinate) cells, such as neuramidase-treated erythrocytes, which have glycoproteins or glycolipids on their surface which include the Gal-β(1-3)-GalNAc carbohydrate sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • One of the major corollaries of the eu-FEDS hypothesis is that persistent pathogens and aggressive tumor cells are able to either mimic or acquire the same carbohydrate functional groups used to suppress any immune response that could interfere with the reproductive imperative, thus enabling them to similarly resist the human immune response. (wikipedia.org)
  • Polymers that co-cluster a receptor on B cells (the B cell receptor) with a carbohydrate-binding protein (CD22) dampen immune responses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sialyl-LewisA, also known as sialyl LeA and SLeA, is a tetrasaccharide carbohydrate with the sequence Neu5Acα2-3Galβ1-3[Fucα1-lcNAcβ- that is usually attached to O-glycans on the surface of cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • The sialyl Lewis X determinant, E-selectin ligand carbohydrate structure, is constitutively expressed on granulocytes and monocytes and mediates inflammatory extravasation of these cells. (wikipedia.org)

  • enzyme
  • The muskoxen rumen metatranscriptome demonstrates a much higher percentage of cellulase enzyme discovery and an 8.7x higher rate of total carbohydrate active enzyme discovery per gigabase of sequence than previous rumen metagenomes. (nih.gov)
  • The carbohydrate-active enzyme database presents a sequence-based classification of glycosyltransferases into over 90 families. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sugar
  • For instance, just four sugars can be strung together to form more than 5 million different types of carbohydrates or nine different sugars may be assembled into 15 million possible four-sugar-chains. (wikipedia.org)
  • glycoinformatics
  • One of the main constrains in the glycoinformatics is the difficulty of representing sugars in the sequence form especially due to their branching nature. (wikipedia.org)
  • gene
  • Carbohydrate-responsive element-binding protein (ChREBP) also known as MLX-interacting protein-like (MLXIPL) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MLXIPL gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • particular
  • The genome of S. suis isolates from the outbreak were examined to see whether its DNA sequence could explain why these particular bacteria were able to cause STSS. (wikipedia.org)
