Sorry, no etymologies found.
At the University of Ottawa, scientists have developed a novel compound, composed of collagen and a tetrasaccharide carbohydrate called sialyl Lewis X, designed to provide a scaffold to help the body grow new blood vessels.
The novel biomaterial developed by the Heart Institute combines a collagen protein and a molecule known as sialyl Lewis X.

Purified recombinant TcTS enzyme or TcTS derived from trypomastigotes (similar to the infective form of the parasite present in the mammalian host) were preincubated for 30 min with the sample to be tested, and the remnant ability to transfer the sialyl residues from sialyllactose to [
