Multiple mRNA isoforms are generated from SIAT1, the gene encoding the beta-galactoside alpha 2,6-sialyltransferase (ST6Gal I, SiaT-1, ST6N, alpha 2,6ST). These isoforms are transcriptionally initiated from a number of physically distinct promoter regions. In human B-lymphocytic cells, two SIAT1 mRNA isoforms have been identified. In order to determine if additional SIAT1 mRNA isotypes exist, RNA from Louckes, a human cell line with the mature B-phenotype, was subjected to 5'-RACE analysis. In… CONTINUE READING
