Microheterogeneity of acute-phase glycoproteins in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis.

This study was designed to investigate qualitative changes in the carbohydrate side-chains of two acute-phase glycoproteins, alpha 1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) and alpha 1-antichymotrypsin (ACT), in 37 patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis. The glycosylation profile of AGP and ACT was studied using affinity immunoelectrophoresis with the lectin concanavalin A… CONTINUE READING
