Fucosylation of GA1 in murine intestinal epithelia occurs through transcriptional induction of α1,2-fucosyltransferase along with bacterial infection, but the mechanism has not been clearly characterized as to whether it is induced as a result of an immune response to bacteria or of genetic manipulation of the host by bacteria. Accordingly, we analysed the… CONTINUE READING
