26773500 This is the first direct biochemical evidence that Gb3/CD77 synthase is able to synthesize two different glycosphingolipid antigens: P(k) and P1, and when p.Q211E substitution is present, the NOR antigen is also synthesized.
25863098 Mutation in the A4GALT gene is associated with rare p phenotype in P1Pk blood group system.
25041587 The results of this investigation demonstrate a consistent association of A4GALT SNPs rs2143918 and rs5751348 with the P1/P2 phenotypes and suggest that SNP rs5751348 may lead to allelic variations in A4GALT gene expression
24417201 these data elucidate a new explanation underlying the p phenotype, implicating the deleted regions of A4GALT as crucial for P1 and P(k) synthesis, possibly due to loss of binding sites for erythroid transcription factors.
24082034 P1-decorated PSGL-1/mIgG2b bound with high avidity to both Stx1 and Stx2, and as such constitutes a potential therapeutic inhibitor of these toxins.
23927681 several P1PK-null alleles were identified.
22965229 Results suggest that the C631G mutation alters the acceptor specificity of Gb3/CD77 synthase, rendering it able to catalyze synthesis of the Gal(alpha1-4)Gal and Gal(alpha1-4)GalNAc moieties.
21186071 Total urinary protein isoforms of globotriaosylceramide were used to identify Fabry disease in women.
21092013 2 Taiwanese individuals with p phenotype were homozygous for a & 428. No expression of P(k) & no enzyme activity were observed in cells transfected with the mutant construct.
20971946 of A4GALT mRNA in cultured human bone marrow cells revealed novel transcripts containing only the noncoding exon 1 and a sequence (here termed exon 2a) from intron 1.
