Since in a previous study we encountered a subject with an unusual split MG2 banding pattern, the aim of this study was to investigate the molecular basis of this observation. Submandibular/sublingual secretion was collected under resting and stimulated conditions and examined on Western blots probed with anti-MG2 antibodies or on gels stained with periodic acid-Schiff reagent. Genomic DNA was isolated and the N-, tandem repeat (TR), and C-terminal regions of MUC7 were amplified by PCR since… CONTINUE READING
