The human MUC2 mucin apoprotein appears to dimerize before O-glycosylation and shares epitopes with the 'insoluble' mucin of rat small intestine.

Sammanfattning

Rabbit antiserum against a synthetic peptide corresponding to a tandemly repeated amino acid sequence in the human intestinal mucin apoprotein MUC2 was used in immunoprecipitation to study the biosynthesis of MUC2 in the colon-carcinoma cell line LS 174T. Under non-reducing conditions, two bands were precipitated, the smaller with an apparent size of about 700 kDa on SDS/PAGE. When analysed by two-dimensional electrophoresis after reduction, the larger band migrated to the same position as the smaller band and was interpreted as a putative disulphide-bond-stabilized dimer. Pulse-chase experiments showed only the monomer after 5 min and the appearance of the putative dimer after 30 min. The MUC2 apoprotein was also precipitated by antisera against the HF-deglycosylated peptides of the two highly glycosylated domains of the 'insoluble' mucin complex of rat small intestine [Carlstedt, Herrmann, Karlsson, Sheehan, Fransson and Hansson (1993) J. Biol. Chem. 268, [18771-18781]. Endoprotease Lys-C cleavage of the immunopurified apoprotein gave a large fragment of about 250 kDa that was detected by both the antiserum against the MUC2 tandem repeat and one of the glycopeptide antisera. This supports the view that the 'insoluble' mucin of rat small intestine is encoded by the Muc2 gene, as recently indicated by a partial cDNA sequence [Hansson, Baeckström, Carlstedt and Klinga-Levan (1994) Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 198, 181-190] and that parts of the apoprotein are conserved between the species. A lectin from the snail Helix pomatia that detects terminal alpha-GalNAc residues did not bind to the monomer or putative dimer, suggesting that O-glycosylation starts after dimerization. The results indicate that the biosynthetic pathway of the MUC2 mucin may be similar to that of the von Willebrand factor with which MUC2 shares sequence similarities at its C- and N-termini.
