Abstract

Previously, the isolation and partial characterization of rat gastric mucous glycoprotein (MG) has been described (Spee-Brand et al., 1980). We now have isolated a MG from Brunner’s glands of the rat duodenum. The composition and size of the O-glycosidically linked oligosaccharide chains of both gastric and Brunner’s glands MG are described.
