From over 30 acetylated derivatives of neuraminic acid, N-acetylneuraminic acid (referred to as sialic
acid) is the most common in humans.
Estimation and comparative study of serum total sialic
acid levels as tumor markers in oral cancer and precancer.
The localization of the sialic
acid residues is as follows: To Gal 6 Neu5Ac([alpha]2-3) is linked and to both GlcNAc 5 and Gal 6' Neu5Ac([alpha]2-6) is attached.
sonchifolia on Lung tumour nodule formation, rate of survival and on the serum levels of sialic
acid and [gamma]-glutamyltranspeptidase (GCT)
050 when compared with pregnant women with adequate sleep using Students t-test and Mann-Whitney U test for parametric and nonparametric data, respectively; hsCRP: high-sensitivity C-reactive protein; MDA: malondialdehyde; PBSA: protien bound sialic
Neuraminidase and Sialic
Acid in saliva of OSCC patients.
Caption: In this cartoon, neuraminidase is depicted as a mouth which "bites" the bond between hemagglutinin (blue suction cup) and sialic
acid (green rod).
Our new compounds are structurally more similar to sialic
acid than Tamiflu.
Serum and urine sialic
acid along with microalbumin levels were also estimated.
Lysosomal sialidase (neuroaminidase) cleans sialic
acid residues located in the last part of gangliosides, oligosaccharides and glycoproteins.
Among the topics are multifarious roles of sialic
acids in immunity, galectins in acute and chronic inflammation, whether acute phase glycoproteins are bystanders or participants in carcinogenesis, an integrated approach to discovering glyco-biomarkers of inflammation-related diseases, and engineering cellular trafficking via glycosyltransferase-programmed stereosubstitution.
Structurally, transferrin is a polypeptide with two N-linked polysaccharide chains, branched with sialic
