  1. 1. Glycosaminoglycan Biosynthesis in Zebrafish

    Author : Beata Filipek-Górniok; Lena Kjellén; Johan Ledin; Kay Grobe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heparan sulfate; chondroitin dermatan sulfate; biosynthesis; development; N-deacetylase N-sulfotransferase; glycosyltransferases; morpholino; CRISPR-Cas9;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans (PGs) are composed of highly sulfated glycosaminoglycans chains (GAGs) attached to specific core proteins. They are present in extracellular matrices, on the cell surface and in storage granules of hematopoietic cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cellulose Biosynthesis in Oomycetes

    Author : Johanna Fugelstad; Vincent Bulone; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose biosynthesis; cellulose synthase genes; Oomycetes; Phytophthora infestans; Saprolegnia monoica.; Other bioengineering; Övrig bioteknik;

    Abstract : Oomycetes have long been considered as a separate class within the kingdom Fungi, but they are in fact closer to brown algae. They are currently classified in the Stramenopile eukaryotic kingdom, which includes heterokont algae and water molds. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heparan Sulfate Biosynthesis – Clues from Knockout Mice

    Author : Johan Ledin; Lena Kjellén; John Gallagher; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; heparan sulfate; biosynthesis; gene targeting; embryonic development; proteoglycans; NDST; N-deacetylase N-sulfotransferase; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : In the extracellular space, many specialized proteins are located to support cells and to mediate cell-cell signalling. One class of such molecules is heparan sulfate (HS) proteoglycans, which are proteins with different properties and locations but all of them decorated with long unbranched HS polysaccharide chains.

  4. 4. Biosynthesis of decorin and glypican glycosaminoglycan chains

    Author : Mats Jönsson; Bröstcancer-genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Metabolism; Biochemistry; phosphorylation; biosynthesis; glycosaminoglycan; decorin; glypican; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans consist of core proteins substituted with glycosaminoglycan chains. The galactosaminoglycans (GlcUA/IdoUA-GalNAc) and the glucosaminoglycans (GlcUA/IdoUA-GlcNAc) are both initiated on the same tetrasaccharide linkage region GlcUA-Gal-Gal-Xyl-protein. READ MORE

  5. 5. N-Sulfation and Polymerization in Heparan Sulfate Biosynthesis

    Author : Jenny Presto; Lena Kjellén; Gunnar Pejler; Anders Malmström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cell and molecular biology; Heparan sulfate; N-deacetylase N-sulfotransferase; NDST; EXT1; EXT2; Biosynthesis; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Heparan sulfate (HS) is a glycosaminoglycan present in all cell types covalently attached to core proteins forming proteoglycans. HS interacts with different proteins and thereby affects a variety of processes. READ MORE
