Catabolism of N-glycoproteins in mammalian cells: Molecular mechanisms and genetic disorders related to the processes

Molecular Aspects of Medicine

May 31, 2016

Tadashi Suzuki

Abstract

N-glycans on glycoproteins serve as one of the most important co- and post-translational modifications of proteins, and it has been well established that they play pivotal roles in controlling the physicochemical and/or physiological properties of the carrier proteins.

Congenital Brain Malformations

Congenital brain malformations are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients younger than 2 years. Discover the latest research on congenital brain malformations here.

Ataxias

Ataxia is a neurological condition characterized by lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements including loss of coordination, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on ataxia here.

Extracellular Space: Brain

The extracellular space (ECS) in brain occupies approximately twenty percent of the brain volume and is dynamic and highly regulated. Here is the latest research on ECS in the brain.

Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome

Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS) is a rare inflammatory neurological disorder characterized by ocular, sleep, and behavioural disorders, as well as ataxia. Here is the latest research on OMS.

Exocytosis & Endocytosis: Imaging

Dynamin GTPases are proteins that are responsible for endocytosis in cells, as well as division of organelles, cytokinesis, and pathogen resistance. Discover the latest research on dynamin GTPases here.

Ataxia

Ataxia is a neurological condition characterized by lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements including loss of coordination, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on ataxia here.

Lysosomal Storage Disease

Lysosomal storage diseases and related disorders are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases caused by genetic mutations that result in deficiencies of specific lysosomal enzymes. Here is the latest research on lysosomal storage diseases.

Oxygenation & Hydroxylation

Oxygenation is a chemical production that introduces oxygen atom into an organic compound. Hydroxylation is a chemical process that introduces a hydroxyl group (-OH) into an organic compound. In biochemistry, hydroxylation reactions are often facilitated by enzymes called hydroxylases. Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes are expressed mainly in the liver and are active in mono-oxygenation and hydroxylation of various xenobiotics, including drugs and alcohols, as well as that of endogenous compounds such as steroids, bile acids, prostaglandins, leukotrienes and biogenic amines. Here is the latest research.

Tay-Sachs Disease

Tay Sachs disease is a neurodegenerative disorder due to β-hexosaminidase A deficiency caused by mutations in the HEXA gene. Discover the latest research on Tay-Sachs disease here.

Proteostasis

Proteostasis enables the maintenance of protein homeostasis via modulation of protein translation, enhancement of chaperone capacity and the prompt clearance of misfolded proteins. It is affected in several neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy is a neurodegenerative disease belonging to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, a group of diseases including sheep scrapie and human Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Here is the latest research.

Endocytic System

Adsorptive and receptor-mediated endocytosis via clathrin-coated vesicles provides the major and best-characterized portal for uptake of multiple molecules and particles into cells. Via clathrin-dependent endocytosis, cells receive nutrients, regulate receptors and other plasma membrane constituents, take up antigens, and remove senescent, excess, and potentially harmful substances from the extracellular fluid. Discover the latest research on endocytic system here.

Chaperones & Protein Folding

Chaperones are proteins that play an essential role in protein folding, stability, assembly, and degradation. Their depletion or dysfunction has been implicated in protein folding disorders. Here is the latest research.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.

Glycolipids

Glycolipids are amphitropic compounds with one or more monosaccharide residues glycosidically linked to a lipid. Discover the latest research on glycolipids here.

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are a group of nervous system disorders that increase or decrease voluntary or involuntary movements. Here is the latest research on genetic and environmental factors, as well as mechanisms that underlie movement disorders.

Myoclonus

Myoclonus is a symptom in which muscle jerks occur suddenly and involuntarily. It is often a sign of a neurological disorder. Sudden muscle contractions are termed positive myoclonus while bouts of muslce relaxation are termed negative myoclonus. Find the latest research on myoclonus here.
