Identification of a second immunoglobulin in the most primitive shark, the frill shark, Chlamydoselachus anguineus.

Abstract

Three molecular forms of immunoglobulins: pentamer, dimer and monomer, were isolated from serum of the frill shark, Chlamydoselachus anguineus, the most primitive extant shark. A pentamer having an apparent mass of 900 kDa, consisting of 68 kDa heavy (H) chains and 22-24 kDa light (L) chains, was considered to be IgM because of its similarity to mammalian… (More)
