Surface Glycans of Microvesicles Derived from Endothelial Cells

A group from Shemyakin and Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry RAS, Moscow, Russia has reported about surface glycans of Microvesicles derived from endothelial Ccells.

As shown below, it is clearly shown that the surface glycans of MVs are dominated by α2-6-sialylated forms as N-glycans and the level of some Man-containing glycans are significantly decreased in MVs, comparing surface glycans of MVs and those of Cells.
