Abstract This study examined differential expression of several mucin genes in the human
submandibular gland and trachea, MUC7 tissue and species specificity, and MUC7 genetic
polymorphism. Mucin gene expression examined by RT-PCR indicated that MUC1, MUC4
and MUC7 are expressed in the human submandibular gland, while MUC1, MUC2, MUC4,
MUC5 and MUC7 are expressed in the human trachea. Northern blot analysis confirmed ...
