  • The minimum information required for a glycomics experiment (MIRAGE)
           project: LC guidelines
    • Authors: Campbell M; Abrahams J, Rapp E, et al.
      Pages: 349 - 354
      Abstract: The Minimum Information Required for a Glycomics Experiment (MIRAGE) is an initiative created by experts in the fields of glycobiology, glycoanalytics and glycoinformatics to design guidelines that improve the reporting and reproducibility of glycoanalytical methods. Previously, the MIRAGE Commission has published guidelines for describing sample preparation methods and the reporting of glycan array and mass spectrometry techniques and data collections. Here, we present the first version of guidelines that aim to improve the quality of the reporting of liquid chromatography (LC) glycan data in the scientific literature. These guidelines cover all aspects of instrument setup and modality of data handling and manipulation and is cross-linked with other MIRAGE recommendations. The most recent version of the MIRAGE-LC guidelines is freely available at the MIRAGE project website doi:10.3762/mirage.4.

  • Lectins as possible tools for improved urinary bladder cancer management
    • Authors: Višnjar T; Romih R, Zupančič D.
      Pages: 355 - 365
      Abstract: Urinary bladder cancer is the ninth most common cancer in developed countries with poor prognosis and outcome for the patient due to the challenging diagnosis and limited treatment possibilities. Bladder cancer arises mainly from urothelial cells lining the lumen. Urothelial cells form a three- to five-layered urothelium, which maintains the blood–urine barrier. The carbohydrates that cover the apical surface of superficial urothelial cells, i.e. umbrella cells, are crucial for this function. The composition of the carbohydrate covering is altered during urothelial cancer transformation. These bladder cancer-associated carbohydrate changes are a promising field for diagnosis, therapy and management. Lectins, which are carbohydrate-binding proteins, can be used to detect subtle alterations in carbohydrate composition during urothelial cancer transformation. Extensive research into various lectin applications has already been conducted, but the results are often contradictory and confusing. None of these applications have reached clinical trials. We review the literature and discuss (i) current bladder cancer management, (ii) lectin-based assays for detection of various cancer subtypes, (iii) lectin-based strategies for innovative bladder cancer treatment and finally (iv) lectins in nanotheranostics for personalized bladder cancer management.

  • Identification of a non-canonical chondroitin sulfate linkage region
    • Authors: Persson A; Nilsson J, Vorontsov E, et al.
      Pages: 366 - 371
      Abstract: It is generally accepted that the biosynthesis of chondroitin sulfate and heparan sulfate is proceeding from a common linkage region tetrasaccharide comprising GlcA-Gal-Gal-Xyl-O-. The linkage region can undergo various modifications such as sulfation, phosphorylation and sialylation, and as the methods for studying glycosaminoglycan structure have been developed and refined, the number of discovered modifications has increased. Previous studies on the linkage region and the glycosyltransferases involved in the biosynthesis suggest that variants of the linkage region tetrasaccharide may also be possible. Here, using LC–MS/MS, we describe a non-canonical linkage region trisaccharide comprising GlcA-Gal-Xyl-O-. The trisaccharide was identified as a minor constituent in the proteoglycan bikunin from urine of human healthy donors present as a disulfated pentasaccharide, ΔHexA-GalNAc(S)-GlcA-Gal(S)-Xyl-O-, after chondroitinase ABC degradation. Furthermore, it was present as the corresponding disulfated pentasaccharide after chondroitinase ABC degradation in chondroitin sulfate primed on xylosides isolated from human cell lines. This linkage region trisaccharide may serve as an alternative point of entry for glycosaminoglycan biosynthesis.

  • Mass spectrometry analysis reveals aberrant N-glycans in colorectal cancer
    • Authors: Zhang D; Xie Q, Wang Q, et al.
      Pages: 372 - 384
      Abstract: Aberrant glycosylation is strongly correlated with the development of various cancers. Tumor-associated carbohydrate antigens, including N-glycans, are predominantly expressed on the tumor cell surface. Because the incidence of colorectal cancer is high in China, we investigated aberrant N-glycans from colorectal cancer tissues (CRC) in Chinese patients. By Linear ion trap quadrupole-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, we performed glycomic assays on N-glycans obtained from solid CRC tissues and paired peritumoral tissues. In total, aberrant N-glycans were expressed in the colorectal tumor tissues. Specifically, seven bisecting structures (M/Z 9732+, 10602+, 10752+, 11622+, 11772+, 12642+, 13522+) decreased, M/Z 10552+ (two-antennae complex N-glycan) and M/Z 12792+ (three-antennae complex N-glycan) decreased, M/Z 10132+ and M/Z 11162+ (high-mannose N-glycan) increased, and M/Z 12282+ (bifucosylated N-glycan) increased. To evaluate the MS profile data, several statistical tools were applied, including student’s t test, orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis and receiver operating characteristic curve. The measurement of the degree of bisecting N-glycans had an area under the curve value of 0.823. Interestingly, we observed that the bisecting N-glycans decreased with the tumor stages. This phenomenon was not found in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, in which the bisecting N-glycans had no change. Thus, the expression of bisecting N-glycans may be an interesting point in the study of colorectal cancer.

  • An updated view of the oligosaccharyltransferase complex in Plasmodium
    • Authors: Tamana S; Promponas V.
      Pages: 385 - 396
      Abstract: Despite the controversy regarding the importance of protein N-linked glycosylation in species of the genus Plasmodium, genes potentially encoding core subunits of the oligosaccharyltransferase (OST) complex have already been characterized in completely sequenced genomes of malaria parasites. Nevertheless, the currently established notion is that only four out of eight subunits of the OST complex—which is considered conserved across eukaryotes—are present in Plasmodium species. In this study, we carefully conduct computational analysis to provide unequivocal evidence that all components of the OST complex, with the exception of Swp1/Ribophorin II, can be reliably identified within completely sequenced plasmodial genomes. In fact, most of the subunits currently considered as absent from Plasmodium refer to uncharacterized protein sequences already existing in sequence databases. Interestingly, the main reason why the unusually short Ost4 subunit (36 residues long in yeast) has not been identified so far in plasmodia (and possibly other species) is the failure of gene-prediction pipelines to detect such a short coding sequence. We further identify elusive OST subunits in select protist species with completely sequenced genomes. Thus, our work highlights the necessity of a systematic approach towards the characterization of OST subunits across eukaryotes. This is necessary both for obtaining a concrete picture of the evolution of the OST complex but also for elucidating its possible role in eukaryotic pathogens.

  • The influence of heteromultivalency on lectin–glycan binding
    • Authors: Choi H; Lee D, Singla A, et al.
      Pages: 397 - 408
      Abstract: We recently discovered that the nature of lectin multivalency and glycolipid diffusion on cell membranes could lead to the heteromultivalent binding (i.e., a single lectin simultaneously binding to different types of glycolipid ligands). This heteromultivalent binding may even govern the lectin–glycan recognition process. To investigate this, we developed a kinetic Monte Carlo simulation, which only considers the fundamental physics/chemistry principles, to model the process of lectin binding to glycans on cell surfaces. We found that the high-affinity glycan ligands could facilitate lectin binding to other low-affinity glycan ligands, even though these low-affinity ligands are barely detectable in microarrays with immobilized glycan ligands. Such heteromultivalent binding processes significantly change lectin binding behaviors. We hypothesize that living organisms probably utilize this mechanism to regulate the downstream lectin functions. Our finding not only offers a mechanism to describe the concept that lectins are pattern recognition molecules, but also suggests that the two overlooked parameters, surface diffusion of glycan ligand and lectin binding kinetics, can play important roles in glycobiology processes. In this paper, we identified the critical parameters that influence the heteromultivalent binding process. We also discussed how our discovery can impact the current lectin–glycan analysis.

  • Prevalence of auto-antibodies against D-ribose-glycated-hemoglobin in
           diabetes mellitus
    • Authors: Siddiqui Z; Faisal M, Alatar A, et al.
      Pages: 409 - 418
      Abstract: Glycation of biological macromolecules, due to hyperglycemia, promotes the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). It is accelerated in diabetic patients and is responsible for the pathophysiology and progression of diabetes. Previous reports have shown that amount of AGEs formation and glycation-induced structural damage is higher in hemoglobin (Hb) than other proteins present in blood. In our previous study, we have shown structural changes in Hb by D-ribose which may result into the generation of immunogenic neo-epitopes. Thus, we hypothesized that D-ribose induced structural perturbations in Hb, could result in the formation of neo-epitopes which may provoke an auto-immune response and may also be involved in the immuno-pathogenesis of diabetes type-2 associated complications. Therefore, in the current study, we analyzed the prevalence of autoantibodies in diabetic patient’s sera against D-ribose glycated-Hb by direct binding and competitive ELISA. Direct binding ELISA confirmed that autoantibodies in diabetic patients exhibit significantly high binding with D-ribose glycated-Hb as compared to its native form. The antigen binding specificity of these antibodies was also screened by competitive inhibition ELISA. We also used D-glucose glycated-Hb as a positive control to detect the presence of auto-antibodies by direct binding and inhibiton ELISA. We found that D-glucose glycated-Hb binds with T2DM samples but the affinity to binding is lower than D-ribose glycated-Hb. The overall findings of this study suggest the prevalence of circulating autoantibodies against D-ribose glycated-Hb in diabetic patients and thus, the level of these autoantibodies may be used as biomarker for progression of diabetes.

  • Structure of the zebrafish galectin-1-L2 and model of its interaction with
           the infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) envelope glycoprotein
    • Authors: Ghosh A; Banerjee A, Amzel L, et al.
      Pages: 419 - 430
      Abstract: Galectins, highly conserved β-galactoside-binding lectins, have diverse regulatory roles in development and immune homeostasis and can mediate protective functions during microbial infection. In recent years, the role of galectins in viral infection has generated considerable interest. Studies on highly pathogenic viruses have provided invaluable insight into the participation of galectins in various stages of viral infection, including attachment and entry. Detailed mechanistic and structural aspects of these processes remain undetermined. To address some of these gaps in knowledge, we used Zebrafish as a model system to examine the role of galectins in infection by infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV), a rhabdovirus that is responsible for significant losses in both farmed and wild salmonid fish. Like other rhabdoviruses, IHNV is characterized by an envelope consisting of trimers of a glycoprotein that display multiple N-linked oligosaccharides and play an integral role in viral infection by mediating the virus attachment and fusion. Zebrafish’s proto-typical galectin Drgal1-L2 and the chimeric-type galectin Drgal3-L1 interact directly with the glycosylated envelope of IHNV, and significantly reduce viral attachment. In this study, we report the structure of the complex of Drgal1-L2 with N-acetyl-d-lactosamine at 2.0 Å resolution. To gain structural insight into the inhibitory effect of these galectins on IHNV attachment to the zebrafish epithelial cells, we modeled Drgal3-L1 based on human galectin-3, as well as, the ectodomain of the IHNV glycoprotein. These models suggest mechanisms for which the binding of these galectins to the IHNV glycoprotein hinders with different potencies the viral attachment required for infection.
