Beta3GnT2 (B3GNT2), a major polylactosamine synthase: analysis of B3GNT2-deficient mice.


The polylactosamine structure is a fundamental structure of carbohydrate chains and carries a lot of biofunctional carbohydrate epitopes. To investigate the biological function of polylactosamine chains, here we generated and analyzed knockout mice lacking the gene B3gnt2, which encodes a major polylactosamine synthase. In beta1,3-N… (More)
