Accumulation of histo-blood group antigens such as Lewis b, Lewis Y and H in colon cancer is indicative of poor prognosis. It is accompanied by increase in alpha1,2fucosyl-transferase activity, a key enzyme for synthesis of these antigens. Using a model of colon carcinoma, we previously showed that alpha1,2fucosylation increases tumorigenicity. We now show(More)
The complete coding sequences of three rat alpha1,2fucosyltransferase genes were obtained. Sequence analysis revealed that these genes, called FTA, FTB and FTC, were homologous to human FUT1, FUT2 and Sec1, respectively. A distance analysis between all alpha1,2fucosyltransferase sequences available showed that the two domains of the catalytic region evolved(More)
Accumulation of histo-blood group antigens such as Lewis b, Lewis Y and H increases tumor cell motility and tumorigenesis. Alpha1,2-fucosylation is a key step in the synthesis of these antigens. Two alpha1,2-fucosyltransferases, expressed in colorectal carcinomas, have been characterized (FUT1 and FUT2 in humans, FTA and FTB in rats). To define the relative(More)
This article seeks to validate the French translation of the Strauss and Carpenter revised outcome criteria scale (SCOCS-R) through the study of its interrater reliability, its convergent validity, and its factor structure. Using a sample of 113 DSM-IV schizophrenic subjects, we assessed the interrater reliability of the SCOCS-R and its convergent validity(More)
The presence of alpha1,2-fucosylated glycans at the surface of rat colon carcinoma cells has been associated with an increased tumorigenicity and resistance to natural killer/lymphokine activated killer (NK/LAK) cytotoxicity. We now report that transfection of rat alpha1,2-fucosyltransferases cDNA (FTA and FTB) into REG cells, which are spontaneously devoid(More)
