Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The expression of the hepatocellular membrane receptor for desialylated galactose-termining glycoproteins was studied during different proliferative stages of a human hepatoma cell line. Rapidly growing cells exhibited a reduced endocytotic rate of desialylated orsomucoid as compared to non-growing cells. This reduction was shown to be the consequence of a lower concentration of active cell-surface associated receptor protein in the dividing cells.
