48. Glycosyltransferase Gene Expression in Human Tissues


Using this system, we examined the expression of those genes in 27 different tissues by the technique which we named Systematic Multiplex RT-PCR (SM RT-PCR). The panoramic view of a total of 1836 (68x27) expression data demonstrates that some glycosyltransferase genes are differentially expressed, whereas some others are ubiquitously expressed. Although the expression profiling of glycosyltransferase genes alone may not directly explain the repertoires of oligosaccharides synthesized, it is an important step toward a better understanding of the gene expression network involved in oligosaccharide synthesis/degradation.
