We found polysialic acid synthase activity of ST8Sia II (STX) in vitro and in vivo. Previously, we showed that mouse ST8Sia II exhibits alpha 2,3-sialylated N-glycan alpha 2,8-sialyltransferase activity, but the polysialic acid synthase activity of ST8Sia II was not detected at that time [Kojima, N. et al. (1995) FEBS Lett. 360, 1-4]. When fetuin was [14C]sialylated with ST8Sia II and then its N-linked oligosaccharides were analyzed, a part of the N-linked oligosaccharides was eluted in the… CONTINUE READING
