Study of O-glycan sialylation in C6 cultured glioma cells: Evidence for post-translational regulation of Aβ-galactoside α2,3 sialyltransferase activity by N-glycosylation

Abstract

We have studied the Gal beta 1-3GalNAc-R alpha 2,3 sialyltransferase from C6 glioma cells transferring Neu5Ac from CMP-Neu5Ac onto O-glycans of glycoproteins. Using synchronized C6 glioma cells, we showed that the alpha 2,3 sialyltransferase activity was inhibited by tunicamycin to a greater extend than DNA and protein biosynthesis suggesting inhibition of N-glycosylation of this enzyme. Additional demonstration of N-glycosylation of the alpha 2,3 sialytransferase was provided through ConA-Sepharose binding. Treatment of partially purified alpha 2,3 sialytransferase by peptide-N-glycosidase F showed a significative inhibition demonstrating that N-glycan moiety is required for complete activity of the C6 glioma cell alpha 2,3 sialyltransferase.
