cDNA sequence and chromosome localization of pig α1,3 galactosyltransferase

Abstract

Human serum contains natural antibodies (NAb), which can bind to endothelial cell surface antigens of other mammals. This is believed to be the major initiating event in the process of hyperacute rejection of pig to primate xenografts. Recent work has implicated galoctosyl α1,3 galactosyl β1,4 N-acetyl-glucosaminyl carbohydrate epitopes, on the surface of… (More)
