The majority of the world's best-selling biotherapeutics are glycoproteins. However their production using cellular expression systems invariably produces inseparable mixtures of materials which differ in their attached carbohydrates. As in many cases correct carbohydrate structure is vital for in vivo efficacy, the development of methods for the production of glycoproteins in homogeneous form has become a significant scientific objective. Here a brief overview of recent progress in the production of homogeneous glycoproteins, including monoclonal antibodies, will be discussed, centring on the use of endo-β-N-acetylglucosaminidase (ENGase) enzymes for protein glycoengineering.

The aim of the present study is to investigate the effect of added protein+leucine or caffeine to 1.2 g/kg/h CHO on the rate of post-exercise muscle glycogen re-synthesis in healthy, recre...
Compounds which inhibit the synthesis of proteins. They are usually ANTI-BACTERIAL AGENTS or toxins. Mechanism of the action of inhibition includes the interruption of peptide-chain elongation, the blocking the A site of ribosomes, the misreading of the genetic code or the prevention of the attachment of oligosaccharide side chains to glycoproteins.
Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.
Glycoproteins attached to the surface coat of the trypanosome. Many of these glycoproteins show amino acid sequence diversity expressed as antigenic variations. This continuous development of antigenically distinct variants in the course of infection ensures that some trypanosomes always survive the development of immune response to propagate the infection.
Conjugated protein-carbohydrate compounds including mucins, mucoid, and amyloid glycoproteins.
An early local inflammatory reaction to insult or injury that consists of fever, an increase in inflammatory humoral factors, and an increased synthesis by hepatocytes of a number of proteins or glycoproteins usually found in the plasma.
