  • Sialic acid glycoengineering using N-acetylmannosamine and sialic acid
    • Authors: Moons S; Adema G, Derks M, et al.
      Pages: 433 - 445
      Abstract: Sialic acids cap the glycans of cell surface glycoproteins and glycolipids. They are involved in a multitude of biological processes and aberrant sialic acid expression is associated with several pathologies. Sialic acids modulate the characteristics and functions of glycoproteins and regulate cell–cell as well as cell–extracellular matrix interactions. Pathogens such as influenza virus use sialic acids to infect host cells and cancer cells exploit sialic acids to escape from the host’s immune system. The introduction of unnatural sialic acids with different functionalities into surface glycans enables the study of the broad biological functions of these sugars and presents a therapeutic option to intervene with pathological processes involving sialic acids. Multiple chemically modified sialic acid analogs can be directly utilized by cells for sialoglycan synthesis. Alternatively, analogs of the natural sialic acid precursor sugar N-Acetylmannosamine (ManNAc) can be introduced into the sialic acid biosynthesis pathway resulting in the intracellular conversion into the corresponding sialic acid analog. Both, ManNAc and sialic acid analogs, have been employed successfully for a large variety of glycoengineering applications such as glycan imaging, targeting toxins to tumor cells, inhibiting pathogen binding, or altering immune cell activity. However, there are significant differences between ManNAc and sialic acid analogs with respect to their chemical modification potential and cellular metabolism that should be considered in sialic acid glycoengineering experiments.

  • Recombinant dermatan sulfate is a potent activator of heparin cofactor
           II-dependent inhibition of thrombin
    • Authors: Tykesson E; Maccarana M, Thorsson H, et al.
      Pages: 446 - 451
      Abstract: The glycosaminoglycan dermatan sulfate (DS) is a well-known activator of heparin cofactor II-dependent inactivation of thrombin. In contrast to heparin, dermatan sulfate has never been prepared recombinantly from material of non-animal origin. Here we report on the enzymatic synthesis of structurally well-defined DS with high anticoagulant activity. Using a microbial K4 polysaccharide and the recombinant enzymes DS-epimerase 1, dermatan 4-O-sulfotransferase 1, uronyl 2-O-sulfotransferase and N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfate 6-O-sulfotransferase, several new glycostructures have been prepared, such as a homogenously sulfated IdoA-GalNAc-4S polymer and its 2-O-, 6-O- and 2,6-O-sulfated derivatives. Importantly, the recombinant highly 2,4-O-sulfated DS inhibits thrombin via heparin cofactor II, approximately 20 times better than heparin, enabling manipulation of vascular and extravascular coagulation. The potential of this method can be extended to preparation of specific structures that are of importance for binding and activation of cytokines, and control of inflammation and metastasis, involving extravasation and migration.

  • GRITS Toolbox—a freely available software for processing, annotating and
           archiving glycomics mass spectrometry data
    • Authors: Weatherly D; Arpinar F, Porterfield M, et al.
      Pages: 452 - 460
      Abstract: Mass spectrometry (MS) is one of the most effective techniques for high-throughput, high-resolution characterization of glycan structures. Although many software applications have been developed over the last decades for the interpretation of MS data of glycan structures, only a few are capable of dealing with the large data sets produced by glycomics analysis. Furthermore, these applications utilize databases that can lead to redundant glycan annotations and do not support post-processing of the data within the software or by third party applications. To address the needs, we present GRITS Toolbox, a freely-available, platform-independent software application capable of storing and processing glycomics MS data along with associated metadata. GRITS Toolbox automatically annotates MS data using an integrated glycan identification module that references manually curated databases of mammalian glycans (provided with the software) or any user-defined databases. Extensive display routines are provided to post-process the data and refine the automated annotation using expert knowledge of the user. The software also allows side by side comparison of annotations from different MS runs or samples and exporting of annotations into Excel format.

  • ProGlycProt V2.0, a repository of experimentally validated glycoproteins
           and protein glycosyltransferases of prokaryotes
    • Authors: Choudhary P; Nagar R, Singh V, et al.
      Pages: 461 - 468
      Abstract: Knowledge of glycosylation status and glycan-pattern of proteins are of considerable medical, academic and application interest. ProGlycProt V2.0 ( therefore, is conceived and maintained as an exclusive web-resource providing comprehensive information on experimentally validated glycoproteins and protein glycosyltransferases (GTs) of prokaryotic origin. The second release of ProGlycProt features a major update with a 191% increase in the total number of entries, manually collected and curated from 607 peer-reviewed publications, on the subject. Protein GTs from prokaryotes that catalyze a varied range of glycan linkages are amenable glycoengineering tools. Therefore, the second release presents content that is greatly expanded and reorganized in two sub-databases: ProGPdb and ProGTdb. While ProGPdb provides information about validated glycoproteins (222 entries), ProGTdb catalogs enzymes/proteins that are instrumental in protein glycosylation, directly (122) or as accessory proteins (182). ProGlycProt V2.0 remains highly cross-referenced yet exclusive and complementary in content to other related databases. The second release further features enhanced search capability, a “compare” entries option and an innovative geoanalytical tool (MapView) facilitating location-assisted search-cum filtering of the entries using geo-positioning information of researchers/groups cited in the ProGlycProt V2.0 databases. Thus, ProGlycProt V2.0 continues to serve as a useful one-point web-resource on various evidence-based information on protein glycosylation in prokaryotes.

  • Human adenovirus type 5 increases host cell fucosylation and modifies Ley
           antigen expression
    • Authors: Gutiérrez-Huante K; Salinas-Marín R, Mora-Montes H, et al.
      Pages: 469 - 478
      Abstract: Certain viral infections are known to modify the glycosylation profile of infected cells through the overexpression of specific host cell fucosyltransferases (FUTs). Infection with CMV (cytomegalovirus), HCV (hepatitis C virus), HSV-1 (herpes simplex virus type-1) and VZV (varicella-zoster virus) increase the expression of fucosylated epitopes, including antigens sLex (Siaα2–3 Galβ1–4(Fucα1–3)GlcNAcβ1-R) and Ley (Fucα1–2 Galβ1–4(Fucα1–3)GlcNAcβ1-R). The reorganization of the glycocalyx induced by viral infection may favor the spread of viral progeny, and alter diverse biological functions mediated by glycans, including recognition by the adaptive immune system. In this work, we aimed to establish whether infection with human adenovirus type 5 (HAd5), a well-known viral vector and infectious agent, causes changes in the glycosylation profile of A549 cells, used as a model of lung epithelium, a natural target of HAd5. We demonstrate for the first time that HAd5 infection causes a significant increase in the cell surface de novo fucosylation, as assessed by metabolic labeling, and that such modification is dependent on the expression of viral genes. The main type of increased fucosylation was determined to be in α1–2 linkage, as assessed by UEA-I lectin binding and supported by the overexpression of FUT1 and FUT2. Also, HAd5-infected cells showed a heterogeneous change in the expression profile of the bi-fucosylated Ley antigen, an antigen associated with enhanced cell proliferation and inhibition of apoptosis.

  • Establishment and characterization of Drosophila cell lines mutant for
           heparan sulfate modifying enzymes
    • Authors: Nakato E; Liu X, Eriksson I, et al.
      Pages: 479 - 489
      Abstract: A class of carbohydrate-modified proteins, heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs), play critical roles both in normal development and during disease. Genetic studies using a model organism, Drosophila, have been contributing to understanding the in vivo functions of HSPGs. Despite the many strengths of the Drosophila model for in vivo studies, biochemical analysis of Drosophila HS is somewhat limited, mainly due to the insufficient amount of the material obtained from the animal. To overcome this obstacle, we generated mutant cell lines for four HS modifying enzymes that are critical for the formation of ligand binding sites on HS, Hsepi, Hs2st, Hs6st and Sulf1, using a recently established method. Morphological and immunological analyses of the established lines suggest that they are spindle-shaped cells of mesodermal origin. The disaccharide profiles of HS from these cell lines showed characteristics of lack of each enzyme as well as compensatory modifications by other enzymes. Metabolic radiolabeling of HS allowed us to assess chain length and net charge of the total population of HS in wild-type and Hsepi mutant cell lines. We found that Drosophila HS chains are significantly shorter than those from mammalian cells. BMP signaling assay using Hs6st cells indicates that molecular phenotypes of these cell lines are consistent with previously known in vivo phenomena. The established cell lines will provide us with a direct link between detailed structural information of Drosophila HS and a wealth of knowledge on biological phenotypic data obtained over the last two decades using this animal model.

  • Functional analyses of the UDP-galactose transporter SLC35A2 using the
           binding of bacterial Shiga toxins as a novel activity assay
    • Authors: Li D; Mukhopadhyay S.
      Pages: 490 - 503
      Abstract: SLC35A2 transports UDP-galactose from the cytosol to the lumen of the Golgi apparatus and endoplasmic reticulum for glycosylation. Mutations in SLC35A2 induce a congenital disorder of glycosylation. Despite the biomedical relevance, mechanisms of transport via SLC35A2 and the impact of disease-associated mutations on activity are unclear. To address these issues, we generated a predicted structure of SLC35A2 and assayed for the effects of a set of structural and disease-associated mutations. Activity assays were performed using a rescue approach in ΔSLC35A2 cells and took advantage of the fact that SLC35A2 is required for expression of the glycosphingolipid globotriaosylceramide (Gb3), the cell surface receptor for Shiga toxin 1 (STx1) and 2 (STx2). The N- and C-terminal cytoplasmic loops of SLC35A2 were dispensable for activity, but two critical glycine (Gly-202 and Gly-214) and lysine (Lys-78 and Lys-297) residues in transmembrane segments were required. Residues corresponding to Gly-202 and Gly-214 in the related transporter SLC35A1 form a substrate-translocating channel, suggesting that a similar mechanism may be involved in SLC35A2. Among the eight disease-associated mutations tested, SLC35A2 function was completely inhibited by two (S213F and G282R) and partially inhibited by three (R55L, G266V, and S304P), providing a straight-forward mechanism of disease. Interestingly, the remaining three (V331I, V258M, and Y267C) did not impact SLC35A2 function, suggesting that complexities beyond loss of transporter activity may underlie disease due to these mutations. Overall, our results provide new insights into the mechanisms of transport of SLC35A2 and improve understanding of the relationship between SLC35A2 mutations and disease.

  • Galectin-2 suppresses nematode development by binding to the
           invertebrate-specific galactoseβ1-4fucose glyco-epitope
    • Authors: Takeuchi T; Tamura M, Ishiwata K, et al.
      Pages: 504 - 512
      Abstract: Galactoseβ1-4Fucose (GalFuc) is a unique disaccharide found in invertebrates including nematodes. A fungal galectin CGL2 suppresses nematode development by recognizing the galactoseβ1-4fucose epitope. The Caenorhabditis elegans galectin LEC-6 recognizes it as an endogenous ligand and the Glu67 residue of LEC-6 is responsible for this interaction. We found that mammalian galectin-2 (Gal-2) also has a comparable glutamate residue, Glu52. In the present study, we investigated the potential nematode-suppressing activity of Gal-2 using C. elegans as a model and focusing on Gal-2 binding to the GalFuc epitope. Gal-2 suppressed C. elegans development whereas its E52D mutant (Glu52 substituted by Asp), galectin-1 and galectin-3 had little effect on C. elegans growth. Lectin-staining using fluorescently-labeled Gal-2 revealed that, like CGL2, it specifically binds to the C. elegans intestine. Natural C. elegans glycoconjugates were specifically bound by immobilized Gal-2. Western blotting with anti-GalFuc antibody showed that the bound glycoconjugates had the GalFuc epitope. Frontal affinity chromatography with pyridylamine-labeled C. elegans N-glycans disclosed that Gal-2 (but not its E52D mutant) recognizes the GalFuc epitope. Gal-2 also binds to the GalFuc-bearing glycoconjugates of Ascaris and the GalFuc epitope is present in the parasitic nematodes Nippostrongylus brasiliensis and Brugia pahangi. These results indicate that Gal-2 suppresses C. elegans development by binding to its GalFuc epitope. The findings also imply that Gal-2 may prevent infestations of various parasitic nematodes bearing the GalFuc epitope.
