Two different glycosyltransferase defects that result in GalNAc alpha-O-peptide (Tn) expression.

This study shows for the first time that different glycosyltransferase defects in the biosynthesis of O-linked oligosaccharides give rise to the same GalNAc alpha-O-Ser/Thr determinant on Tn erythrocytes and colorectal carcinoma cells. The O-linked oligosaccharides isolated from the glycophorins of Tn erythrocytes contained predominantly alpha-N… CONTINUE READING
