Epithelial repair is a complex cellular and molecular process, the details of which are still not clearly understood. Plasma membrane glycoconjugates can modulate cell function by altering the function of protein and lipids. Sialyl Lewisx (sLex), a fucose-containing tetrasaccharide, decorates membrane-bound and secreted proteins and mediates cell-cell… CONTINUE READING
