Tissue-dependent expression of two (alpha 1----2)-fucosyltransferases specified by the H and Se genes.

Abstract

Human blood group H substance is produced from its percursor by the action of (alpha 1----2)-fucosyltransferase. In a classical model, the Se gene that determines secretor status is a regulatory gene controlling the expression of H gene-specified fucosyltransferase in the secretory tissues. However, recent biochemical evidence supports a new genetic model… (More)
