Human serotransferrin (Tf) presents a microheterogeneity based on the existence of biantennary and triantennary glycans of the N-acetyl-lactosaminic type. By affinity chromatography on a concanavalin A-Sepharose column in well-defined conditions, human serotransferrin isolated from healthy donors was resolved into three carbohydrate molecular variants: Tf-I (less than 1%), Tf-II (17 +/- 2%) and Tf-III (82 +/- 3%) containing two triantennary glycans, one triantennary and one biantennary glycans… CONTINUE READING
