  1. 1. O-glycosylation of intestinal and respiratory mucins in health and disease

    Author : Jessica Holmén Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mucins; oligosaccharide; O-linked glycosylation; mass spectrometry; MUC2; Fut2 enzyme; Nippostrongylus brasiliensis infection; Cystic Fibrosis; Ulcerative colitis;

    Abstract : Mucins are large glycoproteins with a diverse O-glycosylation constituting up to 80% of the total mucin mass. The mucus layer covering the epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract is largely made up of gel-forming mucins. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on the biosynthesis of ABH and Lewis epitopes on O-glycans

    Author : Jonas Löfling; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Fucose; Lewis antigen; Blood group ABH; biosynthesis;

    Abstract : ABH and Lewis antigens are carbohydrate epitopes (glycans) found on a wide variety of cell surfaces. They are involved in many biological processes, e.g transplantation rejection, bacterial and viral adhesion, cell-cell communication and metastasis. The in vivo synthesis of glycans is mediated by glycosyltransferases (GTs). READ MORE
