Developmental changes of ferret tracheal mucin composition and biosynthesis.


We characterized the chemical composition of mucins secreted by ferret tracheal explants and the activities of key mucin glycosyltransferases in ferret tracheal epithelium during a period of rapid postnatal maturation of the mucin-secreting structures. Ferret tracheal explants secrete three major groups of high molecular weight glycoconjugates: (1) those… (More)
