Carbohydrate Characterization of Purified Thyroxine-binding Globulin by Lectin Blot and Isoelectric Focusing

Abstract

Thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) is the major carrier molecule for transporting thyroid hormones in human serum. It is an acidic glycoprotein of hepatic origin with total carbohydrate content varying from 15 to 20% of weight. The proposed carbohydrate composition of TBG comprises four biantennary and triantennary branched, asparagine-linked oligosaccharide… (More)
