Evidence for interactions between the 30 kDa N- and 50 kDa C-terminal tryptic fragments of human lactotransferrin.


Gel filtration of a mild tryptic digest of diferric human lactotransferrin carried out in presence of 10% (v/v) acetic acid led to the isolation of two fragments, an N-terminal tryptic fragment having an Mr of 30,000 and a C-terminal tryptic fragment having an Mr of 50,000 [Legrand, Mazurier, Montreuil & Spik (1984) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 787, 90-96]. Both… (More)
