We have recently identified two novel cysteine proteinase inhibitors from the skin of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.), named salmon kininogen and salarin. In preliminary experiments, the proteins were found to be both N- as well as O-glycosylated. In the present study we show that both proteins carry biantennary alpha2,3-sialylated N-glycans. A very high… CONTINUE READING
