Abstract

Purified beta-N-acetylglucosaminide beta(1-4)galactosyltransferase and partially purified beta-galactoside alpha(2-6)-sialyltransferase were used to elongate and terminate glycan chains of agalacto-ovalbumin and endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase H-treated yeast invertase in vitro. In the presence of both transferases, 0.1 mol sialic acid was incorporated per mol agalacto-ovalbumin within 24 h. Evidence is presented to show that purification of the galactosylated intermediate increases the efficiency of sialylation. Incorporation of sialic acid into endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase H-treated oligomannose glycoproteins may be useful for in vivo stabilization of these glycoproteins by preventing uptake in liver or reticuloendothelial cells.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
