Mucin synthesis. The action of pig gastric mucosal UDP-GlcNAc:Gal beta 1-3(R1)GalNAc-R2 (GlcNAc to Gal) beta 3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase on high molecular weight substrates.

Abstract

Membrane preparations from pig gastric mucosa were shown to transfer [14C]GlcNAc from UDP-[14C]GlcNAc to blood group A-negative porcine submaxillary mucin previously subjected to mild acid hydrolysis to remove terminal sialyl and fucosyl residues. O-Glycosyl oligosaccharides were removed from enzyme product by alkaline borohydride treatment and, after… (More)
