  1. 1. Formation of Iduronic Acid during Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulfate Biosynthesis

    Author : Emil Tykesson; Lungbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GLYCOSAMINOGLYCAN; CHONDROITIN; DERMATAN; EPIMERASE; SULFOTRANSFERASE; GLYCOSAMINOGLYCAN; CHONDROITIN SULFATE; DERMATAN SULFATE; EPIMERASE; SULFOTRANSFERASE;

    Abstract : All animals and some bacteria can synthesize linear polysaccharides with a backbone of repeating disaccharideunits, called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). The GAGs are either attached to a protein core, as in proteoglycans (PGs), or exist as free polymer chains, as in hyaluronan. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biological Functions of Iduronic Acid in Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulfate in Tumor and Brain Development

    Author : Martin Thelin; Matrixbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; iduronic acid; chondroitin sulfate; esophagus squamous cell carcinoma; cancer; MET receptor; dermatan sulfate; hepatocyte growth factor; DS-epimerase 2; DS-epimerase 1;

    Abstract : Cell behavior such as migration and proliferation, especially during cancer development, are balanced by the surrounding environment. Complex polysaccharides called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are part of this environment and they are known to modulate tumor development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development and application of strategies for the analysis of modification patterns in chondroitin and dermatan sulphate

    Author : Fang Cheng; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; reumatologi; muskelsystem; Skelett; Glycosaminoglycan; Proteoglycan; Chondroitin sulphate; dermatan sulphate; Sequencing analysis; Modification pattern.; Skeleton; rheumatology locomotion; muscle system; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Abstract : Chondroitin (CS) and dermatan sulphate (DS) are socalled glycosaminoglycans (GAG) that are covalently attached to various type of proteins forming a subgroup within the diverse proteoglycan (PG) family. The PGs studied in this thesis are mostly extracellularly located and include aggrecan, biglycan and decorin. READ MORE

  5. 5. Galactosaminoglycans - Role in Brittlestar Limb Regeneration

    Author : Rashmi Ramachandra; Dorothe Spillmann; Barbara Mulloy; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Chondroitin sulfate; Dermatan sulfate; Brittlestar; Regeneration;

    Abstract : Regeneration is, in simple terms, ‘to re-grow’ damaged or lost parts of the body (e.g. cells, tissues and organs) and is a natural phenomenon occurring throughout the life of an organism. The regenerative capacity varies in the animal kingdom. READ MORE
