SECTION 3 - Central dogma (DNA RNA Protein cell organism) - Glycoconjugates: anything that has a sugar structures around them (on the outside of the cell) - Monosaccharide (CH2O)n - Galactose is an isomer of glucose - Oligiosarrachides are short and aren’t repetitive - Mucus main components are polysaccharides - Two classes of protein Glycoconjugates: o Glycoprotein: you have a short sugar chain attached to a protein (maybe 10) o Proteoglycan: much bigger polysaccharides attached to the protein (you much need a GAG chain repeating disaccharide units and there must me a amine group attached to the sugar (-charged because of sulfate groups attached) o They tend to attract/absorb water and take over a large volume form gel-like consistency  In your joints/tissues (part of the electro cellular matrix)  Hyaluronan is a GAG chain that isn’t attached to any protein  Found in beauty products - Function of glycoproteins: o Help proteins from degradation o Hold the protein to the ER until properly folded o Transport signal for protein transport o For glycocalyx  Protection (slimy layer on the surface of cells) - ER: protein folding, and glycosylation o You get a pre-formed sugar precursor that is transferring to proteins entering the ER (transferred to Asn-X(any amino acid except proline)- Ser/Thr)  N-linking glycosylation o No variation in the sequence ER membrane has a carrier protein and is where the sugar is initially attached to-> 7 sugars are added protein is flipped in the membrane sugar is in the inside of the cell o In the ER, they think that glycosylation helps with protein folding o Glycosidase removes glucose o Before leaving the ER some sugars come off, and mannose and leaves the ER to go to the Golgi  In the ER, the protein is modified, but has the exact same sequence  In Golgi there are hundreds of glycosidase (removes glucose) and glycosyl transferases (adds) - Two N-linked Oligosaccharide classes o Complex oligosaccharide: bunch of additional sugars that were added in the Golgi o High-mannose oligosaccharide: lots of mannose - You can also have glycosylation that occurs only in the Golgi (ASN-Glut-Glut will attach sugars) - Why is glycosylation important? o Trafficking of proteins (example: when a phosphate is added to the terminal mannose group the protein will be brought to the lysosome)  Nucleases, proteases, etc.  I-cell Disease (lysosome storage disease (tag doesn’t get added)  Proteins won’t be transferred to lysosome (mutation in glycosyl-transferases)  Most liposomal enzymes are secretes and they go into the blood stream  Bird Flu H4N1 (“bird flu”)  People who were in close contact with birds that were infected  Even though it had a high mortality rate, it was hard to get infected, and no human-to-human transmission o Why? o Because in order for the flu virus to infect the cell , it must attach to the cell recognizes glycosylated protein (O-linkedSer o It matters what the linkage between the two sugars is o For humans, we recognize the 2-6 linkage in upper respiratory tract and 2-3 linkages in the very lower respiratory tract, binds recognize the 2-3 linkage o The Bird flu only recognized the 2-3 linkage (it was hard to spread to our lower respiratory tract) Section 3- Week one- lecture 3 - Hypothesis: “Do you have increased inflammation when they are experienced with Neu5Gc when they have the antibodies for Neu5Gc” o Step 1: give CMAH -/- antibodies to Neu5GCc o Step 2: give either pork or soy o Step 3: measure inflammation (production of cytokines) o Results: highest levels of inflammation in mice with antibodies and experienced to Neu5Gc diet Section 3- Week 2- day 1 - Salic acid are found at the terminal sugar sequence, in mammalian cells - The Experimenters looked to see if the mice had an increase in liver cancer (hepatocellular cancer (HCC), as well as adenoma (benign tumor) o There was an increase in cancer in the mice that had Neu5Gc antibodies as well as exposure to Neu5Gc o CMAH gene makes it so Neu5Gc can be made - Chimps don’t get the kind of cancers or cardiovascular diseases as we do o Can the attempt to get away from the risk of getting malaria (loss of CMAH gene) be the cause of human cancer and cardiovascular system disease - Cells have to release energy as small amounts (step wise) so that the energy can be capture along the way by energy carriers (NADH, etc.) - During glycolysis and , oxygen is not needed (anaerobic), but it’s need in the oxidative phosphorylation - During glycolysis, ATP is made through o 2 ATP consumed o 4 ATP produced o 2 NADH produced o Net gain= 2 ATP’s, 2 NADH o Its more energetically favorable to break the phosphate bond and add it to ADP to create ATP o Citric acid cycle glucose is fully oxidized o Our bodies store glycogen for later use  Fatty acids can be stored and can be broken down in the o The sole purpose of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle isn’t to just make ATP and NADH, but there are a lot of other branches off the cycles that will use these molecules that are made o Glycolysis + oxidative phosphorylation (consumption of oxygen and phosphorylation of ADP) = 30 ATP Section 3- Week 3- Lecture 1 - G- protein coupled receptors: o Active with GTP is bound o 3 subunits o Gs or Gi (stimulates target protein vs inhibits) o First messenger the original extracellular ligand o Second messenger cAMP o PKA (protein kinase a) it phosphorylates a target protein  PKA has many targets - cAMP signaling example o adrenaline in the muscle cell - Huntington disease o Repeats of CAT o The protein that is associated with the Huntington’s protein is most likely transcription factors o The transcription factor is probably bound to DNA o PPARdelta is a nuclear receptor (intracellular receptor) o Control GRP+ PPAR= just GFP(no interaction) o GFPHTT+ PPAR= interaction - Western Blot o Separate proteins on the gel o Transfer proteins to a membrane (on that membrane you have the target protein and others (add in antibody that recognize the target protein; secondary antibody to recognize ) o Why did they use the flag antibody because it recognizes the PPARdelta(you get a band if present)
