Summary A new, partially deficient and phenotypicallyatypical transferrin variant, TF N, was detectedin sera of a number of Finnhorses belonging toone family. The variant was inherited codomi-nantly. In polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis(pH9.0) of sera, variant N appeared as a singleweak band migrating slightly faster than themain anodal band of variant M. After immuno-blotting or isolation an additional, still weaker,faster band was observed as well as some tracebands. The cathodal component… Expand
Transferrin D protein variants in the diagnosis of congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG)
An analytical problem in the differentiation between hypoglycosylation and transferrin (Tf) protein variants is discussed, which is a possible cause of the failure to confirm some of the Tf D variants (in contrast to the other C, B and D allelic combinations that are commonly well identified). Expand
Genetic variants of transferrin in the diagnosis of protein hypoglycosylation
Of the seven Tf phenotypes detected in the set of samples, an apparently higher frequency of Tf C1C2 variant found in some groups of patients was not significant and a higher incidence of some genetic variants has been reported in connection with certain diseases. Expand


Partial characterization of horse transferrin heterogeneity with respect to the atypical type, Tf C.
In starch gel electrophoresis of horse sera each transferrin variant is formed by a strong anodal band and a weaker cathodalband, and results suggest the presence of two sialic acid residues in the slow zone, and of four residue in the fast zone. Expand

On the basis of comparative studies of the tryptic and chymotryptic peptide maps of transferrins D and R it is concluded that there are at least two amino acid substitutions qualitatively in accordance with the difference in the electrophoretic mobility between the two variants at alkaline pH.

Variation of some serum proteins in red deer, Cervus elaphus L.
Great variability was observed in the protease inhibitors PI2, PI3, PI4, PI5, and PI8 and in unidentified zones in the vicinity of albumin, but no genetical or physiological interpretation for this variability is yet available. Expand
Mutations in the equine plasma transferrin and esterase systems.
In the two remaining transferrin mutations and the esterase mutation, reduced plasma concentrations of the proteins were demonstrated by immunological techniques and together with the family data indicated the existence of 'null' alleles. Expand
Heterogeneity of horse transferrin: the role of carbohydrate moiety.
Homozygous horse transferrin (Tf O) is highly heterogeneous and in starch gel electrophoresis it gives at least 9 zones, and it is proposed that component 2a has one diantennary glycan, while component 4b has two. Expand
Primary structure of horse serotransferrin glycans. Demonstration that heterogeneity is related to the number of glycans and to the presence of N-acetylneuraminic acid and N-acetyl-4-O-acetylneuraminic acid.
It is concluded that the serotransferrin variant Tf 2a contains only one glycan while variants Tf 4b and Tf 5b contain two glycans, and the structure of all of the glycans has been established by combining methylation analysis, mass spectrometry and 400-MHz 1H-NMR spectroscopy. Expand
Simultaneous phenotyping of pig plasma alpha-protease inhibitors (PI1, PO1A, PO1B, PI2) and four other proteins (PO2, TF, CP, HPX) by a simple method of 2D horizontal electrophoresis.
A simple and rapid method of 2D agarose gel-horizontal polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was developed for the simultaneous phenotyping of pig plasma alpha-protease inhibitors and as the gene for postalbumin-2 is closely linked to the halothane sensitivity locus Hal, this method is a useful tool for conducting parentage control and for predicting Hal genotypes of individual pigs.

Phenotyping of pig alpha 1B-glycoprotein (PO2) and haemopexin by 1D polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting.
An alternative procedure for the phenotyping of pig alpha 1B-glycoprotein (PO2) and haemopexin is described, based on the separation of serum samples by horizontal polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, passive blotting onto a nitrocellulose (NC) sheet, and immunochemical detection using a mixture of a primary antibody and a peroxidase-labelled secondary antibody.

Further evidence for a silent allele in the transferrin locus of the horse.
A silent allele in the transferrin locus (Tf) was observed in a Thoroughbred mare and in five of her offspring from three different matings and by quantitative immunodiffusion studies. Expand
