• Molecules
  • Two classes of molecules that are greatly enriched in CNS myelin compared to other parts of the body are certain types of proteolipids and glycolipids. (hindawi.com)

  • ligand
  • The saccharides that are attached to the polar head groups on the outside of the cell are the ligand components of glycolipids, and are likewise polar, allowing them to be soluble in the aqueous environment surrounding the cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • enzymology
  • In enzymology, a glycolipid 3-alpha-mannosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.132) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction in which an alpha-D-mannosyl residue is transferred from GDP-mannose to a lipid-linked oligosaccharide, being attached by an alpha-1,3-D-mannosyl-D-mannose bond. (wikipedia.org)
  • In enzymology, a dolichyl-phosphate-mannose-glycolipid alpha-mannosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.130) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction in which an alpha-D-mannosyl residue is transferred from a dolichyl-phosphate D-mannose molecule into a membrane lipid-linked oligosaccharide.

  • peptides
  • In Torpedo and mammals, alternative exons encode H peptides, which contain a C-terminal signal for glypiation, i. e. cleavage and addition of a glycolipid (GPI) anchor. (springer.com)
  • glycosidic
  • Novel, optically active azido alcohols are synthesized from N-haloacetyl oxazolidinone and are coupled with protected, activated carbohydrate residues in stereoselective glycosidic fashion to provide glycolipids in substantially pure stereochemical form. (google.com.au)
  • interaction
  • An example of how glycolipids function within the body is the interaction between leukocytes and endothelial cells during inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is great diversity in the binding mechanisms of glycolipids, which is what makes them such an important target for pathogens as a site for interaction and entrance. (wikipedia.org)

  • New Glycolipid Specific to Nitrogen-Fixing Blue-Green Algae. (springer.com)
  • Monohexoside Derivatives of Long-Chain Polyhydroxy Alcohols: a Novel Class of Glycolipid Specific to Heterocystous Algae. (springer.com)
  • The saccharide of the glycolipid will bind to a specific complementary carbohydrate or to a lectin (carbohydrate-binding protein), of a neighboring cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • The four main human blood types (A, B, AB, O) are determined by the oligosaccharide attached to a specific glycolipid on the surface of red blood cells, which acts as an antigen. (wikipedia.org)

  • class
  • The systematic name of this enzyme class is GDP-mannose:glycolipid 1,3-alpha-D-mannosyltransferase. (wikipedia.org)
  • The systematic name of this enzyme class is dolichyl-phosphate-D-mannose:glycolipid alpha-D-mannosyltransferase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rhamnolipids are a class of glycolipid produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, amongst other organisms, frequently cited as the best characterised of the bacterial surfactants. (wikipedia.org)
  • interactions
  • Using surface plasmon resonance we assayed a kinetic model to study the interactions of A β 25‒35, A β 40 and A β 42 with surfaces containing single glycolipids (Asialo‒GM1, GM1, GD1a or GT1b). (hindawi.com)
  • known
  • Next, a retrospective of what is known of T-cell reactivity directed against proteolipids and glycolipids in patients with MS is presented, and the implications of the findings are discussed. (hindawi.com)
  • cells
  • On the other hand, introduction of β -LacSC12 in African green monkey kidney (Vero) cells gave Gb3- and Gb4-type glycolipids aside from GM3-type ganglioside. (hindawi.com)
  • surface
  • Enzymes called glycosyltransferases link the saccharide to the lipid molecule, and also play a role in assembling the correct oligosaccharide so that the right receptor can be activated on the cell which responds to the presence of the glycolipid on the surface of the cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • role
  • Finally, this review considers the question of what would be required to prove a definite role for autoreactivity against proteolipids and glycolipids in the pathogenesis of MS. (hindawi.com)
