Glycoprotein and protein antifreezes in two Alaskan fishes

J. A. Raymond, Y. Lin, A. L. DeVries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two macromolecular freezing point depressants have been isolated from the serums of two species of Alaskan fishes. A common property of the four antifreezes thus far isolated is a high alanine content which suggests that the mechanism of these antifreezes may be related to a repeating tripeptide unit.
