      AbstractThe role of sialic acid (SA) in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and as a predictor of cardiovascular events has attracted much attention in recent years. However, most studies investigating the role of total and lipid-bound sialic acids (TSA and LSA) in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis lack information on the reason for the elevated SA Cited by: Hayes, B., and Varki, A.

[Roland Schauer] -- Rapid progress in the field of sialic acids has made it desirable to collect the new data about these unique sugars and to continue the series of books on. Abstract. The wide occurrence of sialic acids in nature is an indication of their great biological importance.

As is described in other chapters in this book, the identification of the chemistry acids was pioneered in several laboratories, while the biosynthetic mechanism of sialic acid formation was elucidated essentially by the work of R oseman’s and W arren’s groups in the United States Cited by: Essentials of Glycobiology.

This book explains the following topics: General Principles, Saccharide Structure and Nomenclature, Evolution of Glycan Diversity, Protein Glycan Interactions, Exploring the Biological Roles of Glycans, Biosynthesis, Metabolism, and Function, N Glycans, Proteoglycans and Glycosaminoglycans, Nuclear and Cytoplasmic Glycosylation.

Gangliosides are negatively charged glycosphingolipids that consist of a hydro- phobic ceramide and a hydrophilic oligosaccharide chain bearing one or more sialic acid residues in addition to a number of sugars, namely glucose, galactose, N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetylgalactosamine (Wiegandt, ).Ceramide is an N-acylsphingosine in which the acyl residue is usually a.

Sialic acids, a subset of nine carbon acidic sugars, often exist as the terminal sugars of glycans on either glycoproteins or glycolipids on the cell surface. Sialic acids play important roles in many physiological and pathological processes via carbohydrate-protein interactions, including cell–cell communication, bacterial and viral infections.

In particular, hypersialylation in Author: Xiaoman Zhou, Ganglong Yang, Feng Guan. Gottschalk (Ed.), The Chemistry and Biology of Sialic Acids and Related Substances, Cambridge University Press ()Cited by: Unnatural analogues of sialic acid can be delivered to mammalian cell surfaces through the metabolic transformation of unnatural N-acetylmannosamine (ManNAc) derivatives.

In previous studies, mannosamine analogues bearing simple N-acyl groups up to five carbon atoms in length were recognized as substrates by the biosynthetic machinery and transformed into cell surface Cited by: We developed a copper(I)-catalyzed stereodivergent anomeric propargylation of unprotected aldoses as a facile synthetic pathway to a broad variety of sialic acid derivatives.

The soft allenylcopper(I) species, catalytically generated from stable allenylboronic acid pinacolate (2), is unusually inert to protonolysis by the multiple hydroxy groups of the substrates and thereby.

Metabolism of sialic acids Two projects on the metabolism of Sia focussed on sialidase and Neu5Ac hydroxylase. With sialidases we were mainly interested in their substrate specificities, especially with differently O-acetylated Sia.

This was also of practical importance, enabling the localization of O-acetyl groups in glycan-bound Sia. Neuraminidase enzymes are glycoside hydrolase enzymes that cleave (cut) the glycosidic linkages of neuraminic inidase enzymes are a large family, found in a range of organisms.

The best-known neuraminidase is the viral neuraminidase, a drug target for the prevention of the spread of influenza infection. The viral neuraminidases are frequently used.

Most of the other sialic acids contain one or more O‐acetyl substitutions of the hydroxyl groups at C‐4, C‐7, or C‐ by:   Abstract.

The sialic acids N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) and N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) differ by a single oxygen atom and are widely found at the terminal position of glycans on vertebrate cell animals capable of synthesizing Neu5Gc, most tissues and cell types express both sialic acids, in proportions that vary Cited by:
