Cloned (Comment) Organism
putative cDNA amplified by PCR from a cDNAlambdaZAP library, cloned into the mammalian expression vector pCR3.1 and sequenced, transfection of COS7 kidney cells from the African green monkey with cDNA encoding the enzyme results in about 20fold level of activity over control cells, using lacto-N-neotetraose as acceptor Caenorhabditis elegans
