Nearly all of the resonances in the 13C NMR spectrum of porcine submaxillary mucin glycoprotein (PSM) have been assigned to the peptide core carbons and to the carbons in the eight different oligosaccharide side chains that arise from the incomplete biosynthesis of the sialylated A blood group pentasaccharide (alpha-GalNAc(1-3) [alpha-Fuc(1-2)]-beta-Gal(1-3) [alpha-NeuNGl(2-6)]- alpha-GalNAc-O-Ser/Thr). By use of these assignments, a nearly complete structural analysis of intact PSM has been… CONTINUE READING
