Recent progress in the molecular biology of the clonedN-acetylglucosaminyltransferases

  • 34 Accesses

  • 35 Citations

Abstract

Several genes which code for theN-acetylglucosaminyltransferases have been cloned and characterized. Physiological and pathophysiological roles of the genes still remain to be elucidated but accumulated evidence suggests that theN-acetylglucosaminyltransferase genes are implicated in differentiation, morphogenesis and cancer metastasis.
