L-Fucose and N-acetylneuraminic (sialic) acid occupy terminal positions on the oligosaccharide side-chains of human cervical mucin but the addition of both these monosaccharides to the same carbohydrate acceptor residue is kinetically unfavourable. The following evidence suggests that the levels of L-fucose are more sensitive to regulation than those of N… CONTINUE READING
