Epithelial cells of the human upper respiratory tract contain mostly [alpha]2,6-linked sialic
acids (SA[alpha]2,6) and low levels of [alpha]2,3-linked sialic
acids (SA[alpha]2,3) (3).
These Siglecs are proteins that recognize different versions of sialic
acid, sugars that stud cells in the body.
2015 Market Research Report on Global Sialic
Acid Industry : For overview analysis, the report introduces Sialic
Acid basic information including definition, classification, application, industry chain structure, industry overview, policy analysis, and news analysis, etc.

The virus uses hemagglutinin to bind sialic
acid linkages on the surface of the epithelial cells.
Wilson's laboratory used X-ray crystallography to determine the atomic structures of the H7N9 hemagglutinin protein bound to these sialic
acid receptor molecules.
Hemagglutinin binds to sialic
acid, a sugar moiety on the surface of many cells.
Tamiflu and another anti-influenza drug, Relenza, focus on interrupting neuraminidase's ability to help influenza detach from an infected cell's surface by digesting sialic
acid, a sugar on the surface of the cell.
The research should establish in detail the conformational control of the sialic
acid residue on type III group B Streptococcus polysaccharide.
At the end of the experiment, macroscopic lesions were scored and the degree of oxidant damage was evaluated by colonic total protein, sialic
acid, malondialdehyde, and glutathione levels, collagen content, and tissue factor, superoxide dismutase, and myeloperoxidase activities.
Among the topics are multifarious roles of sialic
acids in immunity, galectins in acute and chronic inflammation, whether acute phase glycoproteins are bystanders or participants in carcinogenesis, an integrated approach to discovering glyco-biomarkers of inflammation-related diseases, and engineering cellular trafficking via glycosyltransferase-programmed stereosubstitution.
acid level in urine was found to be increased (normal value: 17-243 [micro]mol/nmol; the result: 6504 [micro]mol/nmol Cr).
