Biosynthesis of the blood-group-B-specific trisaccharide in a rhesus monkey

Chester, Alan LU ; Hallgren, Peter; Lindberg, Bo S and Lundblad, Arne (1977) In European Journal of Biochemistry 77(1). p.87-91
Abstract
A Rhesus monkey, serologically grouped as B, has been shown to excrete low-molecular-weight carbohydrate material in urine closely related to that found in human urine. Galactose feeding resulted in the excretion of a trisaccharide which was shown to be identical to the trisaccharide isolated from the urine of group B humans under the same conditions. Experiments in which [14C]galactose was administered both orally and via an intestinal vein demonstrated that the intestine is the site of biosynthesis.
