They are particularly interesting because of their cytotoxic activity, determined by the ability of the B chain to bind to galactosyl
terminated glycoproteins on the cell surface.
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine whether modified citrus pectin, a complex polysaccharide rich in galactosyl
residues, could inhibit spontaneous metastasis of prostate adenocarcinoma cells in the rat.
Hepatic functional reserve in patients with biliary malignancies: an assessment by technetium 99m galactosyl
human serum albumin hepatic scintigraphy.
2005; Prashanth and Mulimani, 2005), which is an exo-glycosidase catalyzing the hydrolysis of terminal nonreducing [alpha]-1,6-linked galactosyl
residues from a wide range of galacto-oligosaccharides and polysaccharides (Naumoff, 2004).
and sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol isolated from the brown algae, Undaria pinnatifida and Costaria costata as repellents of blue mussel, Mytilus edulis.
major bearing [beta]1,3 galactosyl
residues side chain, are specifically recognized by a midgut LPG-receptor, PpGalec (6).
Normally, asialogly-coproteins are rapidly removed from the circulation by the liver as the result of binding of their terminal galactosyl
residues to the hepatocyte membrane.
Antibodies against terminal galactosyl
alpha(1-3) galactose epitopes in patients with idiopathic myelofibrosis.
Sample topics include the refined uses of olefin metathesis catalysts for the syntheses of natural cyclitols, and a comparison of arrays of C- galactosyl
peptides with natural glycoproteins.
Both companies reported they had successfully cloned pigs in which a single copy of the alpha 1, 3 galactosyl
transferase gene had been knocked out - "single knock-out pigs.
A company spokesman in Edinburgh said the ability to 'knock out' both copies of the alpha 1,3 galactosyl
transferase (GT) gene was a vital step forward.
Scientists at PPL, which was behind the cloning of Dolly the sheep, have found a way to inactivate the alpha 1,3 galactosyl
