Hyaluronan Today Is host defense due to complement-related lectins? / Katsuki Ohtani, Nobutaka Wakamiya NEW
Research on acquired immunity, including cell-mediated and humoral immunity became prominent with advances made in molecular biology in the 1970s. Later the importance of innate immunity became clear with the discovery of the Toll-like receptor. More recently, lectin studies have drawn new attention to immunology.   ...and more

Hyaluronan Today Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis of Glyco-medicines Using Microbial Endoglycosidase / Kenji Yamamoto
Rapid progress in gene and protein engineering has enabled important advances in the development of new medicines and treatment of various diseases. However, the technique of adding sugar chains to proteins has not yet been fully developed despite the fact that it is important in protein synthesis as a post-translation process in the cell. So far, no effective techniques or tools to freely engineer the sugar chain have been established.   ...and more
