Dendritic cells: a spot on sialic Acid.

Glycans decorating cell surface and secreted proteins and lipids occupy the juncture where critical host-host and host-pathogen interactions occur. Th...

The sweet spot: defining virus-sialic acid interactions.
Viral infections are initiated by attachment of the virus to host cell surface receptors, including sialic acid-containing glycans. It is now possible to rapidly identify specific glycan receptors using glycan array screening, to define atomic-level

Sialic acid removal from dendritic cells improves antigen cross-presentation and boosts anti-tumor immune responses.
Dendritic cells (DCs) hold promise for anti-cancer immunotherapy. However, clinically, their efficiency is limited and novel strategies to improve DC-mediated anti-tumor responses are needed. Human DCs display high content of sialic acids, which inhi

Sialic acid transporter NanT participates in Tannerella forsythia biofilm formation and survival on epithelial cells.
Tannerella forsythia is a periodontal pathogen implicated in periodontitis. This gram-negative pathogen depends on exogenous peptidoglycan amino sugar N-acetylmuramic acid (NAM) for growth. In the biofilm state the bacterium can utilize sialic acid (

Lectin-tagged fluorescent polymeric nanoparticles for targeting of sialic acid on living cells.
In this study, we fabricated lectin-tagged fluorescent polymeric nanoparticles approximately 35 nm in diameter using biocompatible polymers conjugated with lectins for the purpose of detecting sialic acid on a living cell surface, which is one of the

A fast and biocompatible living virus labeling method based on sialic acid-phenylboronic acid recognition system.
The sialic acid (SA)-phenylboronic acid (PBA) recognition system is of particular interest in the bioconjugation field, because it is simple, fast, efficient, and biocompatible. In this paper, we report a novel method for reversibly labeling living v

A sialic acid binding site in a human picornavirus.
The picornaviruses coxsackievirus A24 variant (CVA24v) and enterovirus 70 (EV70) cause continued outbreaks and pandemics of acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC), a highly contagious eye disease against which neither vaccines nor antiviral drugs are

Different expression levels of glycans on leukemic cells-a novel screening method with molecularly imprinted polymers (MIP) targeting sialic acid.
Sialic acid (SA) is normally expressed on the cell membranes and is located at the terminal position of the sugar chains. SA plays an important role for regulation of the innate immunity, function as markers of the cells and can be recognized by a va

Cellular metabolism of unnatural sialic acid precursors.
Carbohydrates, in addition to their metabolic functions, serve important roles as receptors, ligands, and structural molecules for diverse biological processes. Insight into carbohydrate biology and mechanisms has been aided by metabolic oligosacchar

Involvement of a non-human sialic Acid in human cancer.
Sialic acids are common monosaccharides that are widely expressed as outer terminal units on all vertebrate cell surfaces, and play fundamental roles in cell-cell and cell-microenvironment interactions. The predominant sialic acids on most mammalian

Disease mutations in CMP-sialic acid transporter SLC35A1 result in abnormal α-dystroglycan O-mannosylation, independent from sialic acid.
Binding of cellular α-dystroglycan (α-DG) to its extracellular matrix ligands is fully dependent on a unique O-mannose-linked glycan. Disrupted O-mannosylation is the hallmark of the muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy (MDDG) syndromes. SLC35A1, en
