...D. Judy Shon; Angel Kuo; Michael J. Ferracane; Stacy A. Malaker Epithelial surfaces throughout the body are coated by mucins, a class of proteins carrying domains characterized by a high density of O-glycosylated serine and threonine residues. The resulting mucosal layers form crucial host-microbe...
