Because sialic acid has a negative charge, the isoelectric focusing (IEF) patterns of hyposialylated Tf show, in most CDG patients, a cathodal shift that can be caused either by a complete absence of carbohydrate chains (type 1) or by structurally abnormal carbohydrate chains (type 2).
This study investigated the effects of anodal and cathodal microamperage DC ES on wound potential and WSA in guinea pigs.
Because sialic acid has a negative charge, the IEF patterns of hyposialylated transferrin and apoC-III show a cathodal shift that can be caused either by structural glycan changes or by a different number of glycans (3), whereas hypersialylated glycoproteins show an anodal shift.
