• chemistry
  • 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)
  • Bacteria
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • enzymes
  • Carbohydrate binding domain (CBM) family 10/fungal dockerin domains were predominant in these multi domain enzymes, and were found in 190 (78.5%) of these contigs. (nih.gov)
  • Deficiencies in lysosomal enzymes that degrade the carbohydrate portions of various gangliosides are responsible for a number of lysosomal storage diseases such as Tay-Sachs disease, Sandhoff disease, and GM1 gangliosidosis. (hmdb.ca)
  • This publication examines carbohydrate polymerase fidelity and shows that these enzymes can be faithful not promiscuous. (wikipedia.org)
  • Instead, the sequence is largely determined by the kinetic differences in the enzymes and variations in the biosynthetic micro-environment of the cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Glycolipids
  • 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)
  • sialyl
  • 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)
  • Human ZP is coated with highly dense N- and O-glycans that are terminated with the sialyl-Lewisx sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • functional
  • 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)
  • Cells
  • Polymers that co-cluster a receptor on B cells (the B cell receptor) with a carbohydrate-binding protein (CD22) dampen immune responses. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • 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)

  • known
  • 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)
