Isolated from glands that are typed for their blood group A+ or A-phenotype by standard serological methods. The mucins are prepared as described in ref 1.

Composition: Information on the structures of the carbohydrate chains on A+ and A-mucins are given in ref 2.

UDP-GlcNAc:Galb1-3GalNAca-R/b(1-6)-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (EC
