Circulating malignant lymphocytes from Sezary syndrome express high level of glycoproteins carrying beta (1-6)N-acetylglucosamine-branched N-linked oligosaccharides.

Abstract

The circulating forms of malignant cells from patients with Sezary syndrome exhibit on their glycoproteins a high level of beta (1-6)GlcNAc-branched N-linked oligosaccharides, a particular species of glycans related to the metastatic potential of several tumors and T lymphocytes activation. An increased activity of the N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase V and of the beta (1-4)galactosyltransferase, two enzymes implicated in beta (1-6)GlcNAc-branching is also found. Nevertheless, contrary to activated normal T lymphocytes, Sezary lymphocytes in agreement with their non-proliferating state, do not exhibit increased thymidine uptake. This result suggests that expression of the beta (1-6)GlcNAc-branched N-linked carbohydrates could be related to some of the malignant properties of Sezary lymphocytes.
