Comparison of polysaccharide synthesis between preimplantation stage mouse embryos and F9 embryonal carcinoma cells.

Polysaccharide synthesis was compared between preimplantation stage mouse embryos and F9 embryonal carcinoma cells. When cells were labelled with [3H]fucose, elution profiles of the pronase digest from a Sephacryl S-200 column were similar for the two cell types and both had characteristic large polysaccharides of the same size (Mr 20-500K), although… (More)
