The major glycoprotein from human tracheobronchial secretions and from primary explant cultures of human tracheal epithelium has been purified to apparent homogeneity. Mucin was solubilized in buffer and fractionated on Sepharose CL-4B, followed by CsBr density gradient centrifugation of the void volume fraction. High- and low-density fractions were(More)
A high-density mucin glycoprotein was isolated from human tracheobronchial secretions substantially free of contaminating protein, low-density glycoprotein, proteolytic enzymes, and lipid. A closely associated 65-kDa protein was discovered while investigating the effect of 2-mercaptoethanol treatment on the purified mucin glycoprotein. It has been(More)
Following several model experiments, conditions were developed for optimal deglycosylation of tracheal mucin glycoproteins. Exposure of rigorously dried material to trifluoromethanesulfonic acid at 0 degree C for up to 8 h results in cleavage of essentially all fucose, galactose, and N-acetylglucosamine, about 80% of the N-acetylneuraminic acid (NeuNAc),(More)
Canine tracheal mucin glycoprotein was isolated from beagle dogs fitted with tracheal pouches. Following exclusion chromatography on Sepharose CL-4B, noncovalently associated proteins were further resolved by dissociative density gradient centrifugation in CsBr-guanidinium chloride, and the mucin was then extracted with chloroform-methanol. The delipidated(More)
