Human plasma protein N-glycosylation.
Wuhrer et al., Leiden, Netherlands. In Glycoconj J, Dec 2015
Thus, as the assessment of protein glycosylation is becoming a major element in clinical and biopharmaceutical research, this review aims to convey the current state of knowledge on the N-glycosylation of the major plasma glycoproteins alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, alpha-1-antitrypsin, alpha-1B-glycoprotein, alpha-2-HS-glycoprotein, alpha-2-macroglobulin, antithrombin-III, apolipoprotein B-100, apolipoprotein D, apolipoprotein F, beta-2-glycoprotein 1, ceruloplasmin, fibrinogen, immunoglobulin (Ig) A, IgG, IgM, haptoglobin, hemopexin, histidine-rich glycoprotein, kininogen-1, serotransferrin, vitronectin, and zinc-alpha-2-glycoprotein. In addition, the less abundant immunoglobulins D and E are included because of their major relevance in immunology and biopharmaceutical research.
Multi-omics profiling reveals that eating difficulties developed consecutively to artificial nutrition in the neonatal period are associated to specific saliva composition.
Feron et al., Dijon, France. In J Proteomics, Nov 2015
Finally, salivary profiles of ED patients were partly comparable to those of subjects with exacerbated gustatory sensitivities, in particular with reduced abundance of cystatin SN and higher abundance of zinc-alpha-2-glycoprotein. Whether this translates taste hypersensitivity and contributes to the eating difficulties deserves further attention.
Optimal aluminum/zirconium: Protein interactions for predicting antiperspirant efficacy using zeta potential measurements.
Pan et al., In J Cosmet Sci, Mar 2015
The interactions between commercial antiperspirant (AP) salts [aluminum chlorohydrate (ACH), activated ACH, aluminum sesquichlorohydrate (ASCH), zirconium aluminum glycine (ZAG), activated ZAG), pure aluminum polyoxocations (Al13-mer, Al30-mer), and the zirconium(IV)-glycine complex Zr6 (O)4 (OH)4 (H2O)8 (Gly)8]12+(-) (CP-2 or ZG) with Bovine serum albumin (BSA) were studied using zeta potential and turbidity measurements.
