  • This study has directed attention at the search for bone-related proteins in an extract of demineralized rib bone of the 120 mya Iguanodon . The inner compact bone was demineralized and the GuCl extract resolved into 11 fractions using anion exchange chromatography, which all contained silver-reactive proteins with various amino acid profiles. Two specific fractions, iv and xi, revealed characteristics typical of contemporary phosphoproteins and proteoglycans, respectively. Fraction iv, 43-57… CONTINUE READING
