Examples of "paragloboside"
This enzyme belongs to the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the hexosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is UDP-galactose:N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl-(1->3)-beta-D-galactosyl- (1->4)-beta-D-glucosylceramide 3-beta-D-galactosyltransferase. Other names in common use include uridine, diphosphogalactose-acetyl-glucosaminylgalactosylglucosylceramide, galactosyltransferase, GalT-4,
synthase, glucosaminylgalactosylglucosylceramide 4-beta-galactosyltransferase, lactotriaosylceramide 4-beta-galactosyltransferase, UDP-galactose:N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyl-1,3-D-galactosyl-1,4-D-, glucosylceramide beta-D-galactosyltransferase, and UDP-Gal:LcOse3Cer(beta 1-4)galactosyltransferase.
Portions of the LPS from several bacterial strains have been shown to be chemically similar to human host cell surface molecules; the ability of some bacteria to present molecules on their surface which are chemically identical or similar to the surface molecules of some types of host cells is termed molecular mimicry. For example, in "Neisseria meningitidis" L2,3,5,7,9, the terminal tetrasaccharide portion of the oligosaccharide (lacto-N-neotetraose) is the same tetrasaccharide as that found in
, a precursor for ABH glycolipid antigens found on human erythrocytes. In another example, the terminal trisaccharide portion (lactotriaose) of the oligosaccharide from pathogenic "Neisseria" spp. LOS is also found in lactoneoseries glycosphingolipids from human cells. Most meningococci from groups B and C, as well as gonococci, have been shown to have this trisaccharide as part of their LOS structure. The presence of these human cell surface 'mimics' may, in addition to acting as a 'camouflage' from the immune system, play a role in the abolishment of immune tolerance when infecting hosts with certain human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genotypes, such as HLA-B35.
