A monoclonal antibody, Onc-M26, that recognizes a cancer-associated antigen expressed by most human adenocarcinomas of the breast was shown previously to recognize a carbohydrate epitope carried on a hexaglycosyl ganglioside carrying the sialyl-Lewis X (SLex) antigen (P.S. Linsley et al., 1988, Cancer Res. 48, 2138-2148). Evidence that the antibody binds even more avidly to minor gangliosides containing more complex carbohydrate chains prompted us to search for a higher affinity epitope among sialylated oligosaccharides from pooled human milk. Affinity chromatography of a partially purified fraction of monosialylated milk oligosaccharides on a column containing monoclonal antibody Onc-M26 bound to a macroporous silica matrix gave a peak with a retention volume significantly greater than that of a standard SLex-active hexasaccharide. The retained material consisted of two nonasaccharides, each containing the SLex tetrasaccharide sequence, Neu5Ac alpha 2-3Gal beta 1-4(Fuc alpha 1-3) GlcNAc, linked beta 1-6 to a 3,6-disubstituted galactosyl residue.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Signaling in Adult Neurogenesis

Neural stem cells play a critical role in the production of neuronal cells in neurogenesis is of great importance. Of interest is the role signalling mechanisms in adult neurogenesis. Discover the latest research on signalling in adult neurogenesis.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
