• Antigens
  • Antigens which are not present in an individual's blood will cause antibodies to be produced, which will bind to the foreign glycolipids. (wikipedia.org)
  • The main objective of this project is to develop a novel immunotherapy for gliomas, in which glycolipid antigens are analyzed and quantified systematically and a set of appropriate antibodies would be selected according to the antigenic profile of an individual glioma. (nii.ac.jp)
  • There should be a variety of factors that influence the antibody reactions against glycolipid antigens. (nii.ac.jp)
  • We are now focusing on the glycolipid analysis of surgical specimens of glioma tissue as well as on the factors participating in the antibody reactivity against those antigens. (nii.ac.jp)

  • 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)
  • 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)

  • recognition
  • The main function of glycolipids in the body is to serve as recognition sites for cell-cell interactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Glycolipids are also responsible for other responses, notably the recognition of host cells by viruses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Glycolipids perform a vast number of functions in the biological membrane that are mainly communicative, including cell recognition and cell-cell adhesion. (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)
  • 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)
  • The glycolipid is assembled in the Golgi apparatus and embedded in the surface of a vesicle which is then transported to the cell membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • The vesicle merges with the cell membrane so that the glycolipid can be presented on the cell's outside surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • Therefore, a person with A blood type will have the A antigen and H antigen present on the glycolipids of the red blood cell plasma membrane. (wikipedia.org)
