The predicted amino acid sequence of carbohydrate-binding protein 35 (CBP35; Mr approximately 35,000), a galactose-specific lectin in many mouse and human cells, has been compared to the predicted sequence of an IgE-binding protein (epsilon BP) originally identified in rat basophilic leukemia cells. The sequences of the two proteins showed that: (a) 85% of the amino acid residues are identical; (b) the polypeptide chains are comprised of two distinct domains; and (c) highly conserved internal… CONTINUE READING
