Induction of FucT-VII by the Ras/MAP kinase cascade in Jurkat T cells.


Induction of the alpha1,3-fucosyltransferase FucT-VII in T lymphocytes is crucial for selectin ligand formation, but the signaling and transcriptional pathways that govern FucT-VII expression are unknown. Here, using a novel, highly phorbol myristate acetate (PMA)-responsive variant of the Jurkat T-cell line, we identify Ras and downstream mitogen-activated… (More)
