Mucins are high molecular-weight glycoproteins having oligosaccharides attached to serine or threonine residues of the mucin core protein backbone by O-glycosidic linkages. They are major components of mucus, covering the luminal surfaces of epithelial respiratory, gastrointestinal and reproductive tracts, and responsible for its viscoelastic properties. The core proteins of mucins are encoded by different mucin genes. Aberrations in the cell surface carbohydrates including mucins have been… CONTINUE READING
