Transcript of Glycosylation, Hypogammaglobulinemia and Resistance to Viral

Materials & Methods
What is Glycosylation
Glycosylation is the reaction in which a carbohydrate, i.e. a glycosyl donor, is attached to a hydroxyl or other functional group of another molecule
Two siblings with the rare genetic disorder
that causes severe hypogammaglobuinemia are paradoxically resistant to enveloped viral infection and transmission

What is CDG IIb?
Genetic defects in
,the gene encoding
mannosyl-oligosaccaride glucosidase
causes the rare cogential disorder of glycosylation, CDG-IIb a neuro-degenerate disorder, which among other things causes severe

An abnormally low level of immunoglobins specifically IgG. Immunoglobins aka antibodies are proteins used to fight infections
Dysmorphic facial features
global developmental delay
cerebral atrophy
small corpus callosum
optic nerve atrophy
sensorineural hearing loss\
hypoplastic genitalia
chronic constipation
recurrent bone fractures
severe hypogammaglobuninemia
UMM I missed Dr. Kim's class that day...

What do all those words mean?
Immunoblotting of Lysates
MALDI-TOF (Matrix assisted laser detection desorption ionization)
Enzyme Linked immunosorbent spot assay
Polymerase Chain Reaction Assay

The MOGS Gene
Located on the short P arm of chromosome 2
position 13.1 about 4500 bp in length
Why is this happening?
Patients show reduced ceceptibility to glycosylation dependent virons only
Data suggests that altered glycosylation might modify the suceptibility to infection to viruses that must undergo protien glycosylation to complete their infection cycle
Stands for mannosyl-oligosaccharide glucosidase
The purpose of this study was to investigate why two children with CDG-IIb with severe hypogammoglobulinemia are immune to certain types of viral infections

Future Direction
To study biological activity of CDG-IIb and immunoglobulins by evaluating
MOGS expression
Plasma IgG N-Glycan profile
Unfolded protein response and ER-associated degradation
in vitro imunoglobin production
immunoglobin half-life
Thanks for listening!
Further study on the effects of using the drug cantanosperimine on viral glycoproteins to reduce rate of viral replication
MOGS inhibitors used to slow replication of HIV, dengue, herpes, and hepatitis C viruses
Reason for absence of frequent, severe bacterial infections in both patients
