  1. 1. FROM SERUM TO TISSUE: GALECTIN-BINDING GLYCOFORMS OF SERUM GLYCOPROTEINS AS FUNCTIONAL BIOMARKERS

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Michael Carlsson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Galectin; glycoproteins; intracellular sorting; biomarkers;

    Abstract : Galectins are small soluble proteins defined by a conserved sequence motif that forms a defining β-galactoside binding site shared among galectins; adjacent binding sites give each galectin a unique fine specificity for a specific subset of galactose containing glycans. A wealth of data now suggests important roles of galectins in both cancer and inflammation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interaction of herpes simplex virus with cell surface glycosaminoglycans as a target for antiviral intervention

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Kicki Bergefall; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HSV; glycoproteins; glycosaminoglycans; virus receptor; antiviral drugs;

    Abstract : Herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections in humans are predominantly manifested as oral cold sores or genital ulcers. As HSV infects cells by interaction with cell surface heparan sulfate (HS) and/or chondroitin sulfate (CS), the aim of the research work presented in this thesis was to explore the possibility of antiviral intervention with compounds that mimic HS or CS.

  3. 3. Bacteria-agglutinating glycoproteins in human saliva an in vitro study with special reference to Streptococcus mutans

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jan Rundegren; Umeå universitet.; [1982]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; agglutinin; glycoprotein; saliva; streptococcus mutans;

    Abstract : The activity and specificity of salivary glycoproteins (agglutinins) aggregating various human indigenous microorganisms were studied in vitro. The agglutinin reacting with a serotype c strain of Streptococcus mutans was isolated and chemically characterized.The results can be summarized as follows:1. READ MORE

  5. 5. Separation of Glycoproteins using Shielding Boronate Affinity Chromatography

    University dissertation from Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : YuCai Li; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; affinity chromatography; boronate; chymotrypsin; haemoglobin; mistletoe lectin; neoglycoprotein; glycosylation; shielding; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Pharmaceutical and related technologies; Läkemedelsteknik och relaterad teknik;

    Abstract : Glycoproteins, a class of biomolecules, exhibit a variety of biological activities and therefore are of importance in modern biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. Pure glycoproteins are needed for structural and functional studies. However, the separation of glycoproteins has been a problem until now due to their structural complexity. READ MORE
