Influence of polymorphism on glycosylation of serum amyloid a4 protein.

Serum amyloid A4 (SAA4) is a constitutive apolipoprotein of high-density lipoprotein. It exhibits N-linked glycosylation in its second half. There are...

Characterization of rat serum amyloid A4 (SAA4): a novel member of the SAA superfamily.
The serum amyloid A (SAA) family of proteins is encoded by multiple genes, which display allelic variation and a high degree of homology in mammals. The SAA1/2 genes code for non-glycosylated acute-phase SAA1/2 proteins, that may increase up to 1000-

Influence of C-terminal truncation of murine Serum amyloid A on fibril structure.
Amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis is a systemic protein misfolding disease affecting humans and other vertebrates. While the protein precursor in humans and mice is the acute-phase reactant serum amyloid A (SAA) 1.1, the deposited fibrils consist mainly of

The influence of the CYP3A4*22 polymorphism on serum concentration of quetiapine in psychiatric patients.
Besides dietary, hormonal, or pathological factors, mutations in cytochrome P450 enzymes are thought to be responsible for the interindividual differences in serum concentrations of cytochrome P450 (CYP450)-dependent drugs. Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A

term trophoblast cells.
Trophoblast invasion into uterine tissues represents a hallmark of first trimester placental development. As expression of serum amyloid A4 (SAA4) occurs in tumorigenic and invasive tissues we here investigated whether SAA4 is present in trophoblast-

Influence of the protein context on the polyglutamine length-dependent elongation of amyloid fibrils.
Polyglutamine (polyQ) diseases, including Huntington's disease, are neurodegenerative disorders associated with the abnormal expansion of a polyQ tract within nine proteins. The polyQ expansion is thought to be a major determinant in the development

The influence of acceptor nucleophilicity on the glycosylation reaction mechanism.
A set of model nucleophiles of gradually changing nucleophilicity is used to probe the glycosylation reaction mechanism. Glycosylations of ethanol-based acceptors, bearing varying amounts of fluorine atoms, report on the dependency of the stereochemi

Protein-Specific Differential Glycosylation of Immunoglobulins in Serum of Ovarian Cancer Patients.
Previous studies indicated that glycans in serum may serve as biomarkers for diagnosis of ovarian cancer; however, it was unclear to which proteins these glycans belong. We hypothesize that protein-specific glycosylation profiles of the glycans may b

Comparison of serum amyloid A protein and C-reactive protein levels as inflammatory markers in periodontitis.
The purpose of this study was to compare serum amyloid A (SAA) protein levels with high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels as markers of systemic inflammation in patients with chronic periodontitis. The association of serum titers of antibo

The effect of malnutrition on protein glycosylation in children.
The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of protein energy malnutrition on protein glycosylation by investigating transferrin isoform pattern and its relationship to the degree of malnutrition and the biochemical markers of nutritional statu
