... quaternary structure that appears ideally suited as a scaffold for the presentation of specific glycans. In fact, the four oligosaccharides are presented in close proximity on the same side of the dimer surface, which increases avidity for cellular receptors, e.g. during sperm–egg recognition. A...

...(Fucα1-2)Galβ1-4Glc under low pH conditions. Binding to the strong interaction partner N -acetyl- D -lactosamine was also lost at pH 5.0, whereas the less efficient ligand lactose was still able to bind. This indicates that variations in the binding specificity to distinct glycans can be observed by...

... key active-site residues required for catalysis. A glycan screen identified oligomers of N -acetylglucosamine as preferred binding partners. YKL-39 binds chitooligosaccharides and a newly synthesized derivative of the bisdionin chitinase-inhibitor class with micromolar affinity, through a number of...

... shifts in glycosylation profiles take place during its life cycle. In the present study, we have applied HPLC and mass spectrometric methods to show that the major N-glycans in axenic cultures of the AX3 strain are oligomannosidic forms, most of which carry core fucose and/or intersecting and bisecting N...

... comparison of the oligosaccharide repertoire, with respect to size, diversity and expression of glycans and terminal epitopes, showed a high level of mucin-specific glycosylation: highly fucosylated glycans, found specifically in the small intestine, were mainly based on core 4 structures, GlcNAc-(β1-3...

... high- and low-affinity binding sites with K d values of 16nM and 4.9 μ M respectively. The fact that heat denaturation of AGP only partly inhibited this binding (43%) suggests that protein–protein interactions are involved, as well as AGP glycans which are resistant to heat denaturation. Mannan, but...
