Two binding proteins, which are specific for mannose and N-acetylglucosamine, were isolated from rat serum to homogeneity. The minor component [serum mannan-binding protein I (S-MBP-I)] was indistinguishable from rat liver mannan-binding protein (L-MBP). S-MBP-I had a molecular mass of about 200 kDa and consisted of about six identical 32-kDa subunits; the molecule had a collagen-like structure, and its properties were identical to those of L-MBP. S-MBP-I was also indistinguishable from L-MBP… CONTINUE READING
