Because of its ability to selectively glucosylate misfolded glycoproteins, UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGGT) functions as a folding sensor in the glycoprotein quality control system in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The unique property of UGGT derives from its ability to transfer a

To support growth, tumour cells reprogramme their metabolism to simultaneously upregulate macromolecular biosynthesis while maintaining energy production. Uncoupling proteins (UCPs) oppose this phenotype by inducing futile mitochondrial respiration that is uncoupled from ATP synthesis, resulting in nutrient wasting. Here using

Noncovalent PEGylation has great potential for stabilization of therapeutic proteins. Here, we demonstrated that the noncovalent PEGylation with a PEGylated polyelectrolyte stabilized a therapeutic protein, l-asparaginase (ASNase). Anionic ASNase and cationic poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(N,N-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate) (PEG-b-PAMA) formed a water-soluble protein-polyelectrolyte complex
