O-Acetylation of the 9-hydroxyl group of sialic acids has been suggested to modify various recognition phenomena involving these molecules, but direct proof has been lacking in most situations. In the accompanying paper (Shi, W.-X., Chammas, R., and Varki, A. (1996) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 31517-31525), we report that the extent of 9-O-acetylation of cell… CONTINUE READING
