Characterization of serum, liver, and intestinal sialyltransferases from rats treated with colchicine.

A modified high pressure liquid chromatographic method using lactose (Gal beta 1----4Glc) as an exogenous acceptor has been used to characterize the sialyltransferases known to increase in the serum of colchicine-treated rats. The results show a 10-fold increase of Gal beta 1----4GlcNAc alpha 2----6 sialyltransferase (alpha 2----6 ST), whereas the Gal beta… CONTINUE READING
