Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Two groups of low molecular weight glycoproteins were isolated from the blood serum of an antarctic fish Trematomus borchgrevinki. The complete structures, both the amino acid sequence and the configuration of the carbohydrate moieties, have been studied. The two glycoproteins are similar in structure but different in size. Solutions of these glycoproteins display a thermal hysteresis similar to that of solutions of larger glycoproteins previously isolated from the same fish.
