Purification and comparison of beta-1,3-glucan binding protein from white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei).


A beta-glucan binding protein (BGBP) was identified in both white (Penaeus vannamei) and blue shrimp (P. stylirostris) plasma. White shrimp BGBP was purified by affinity chromatography using immobilized laminarin, and its molecular and biological properties were described. White shrimp BGBP is a monomeric protein with a molecular mass of 100 kDa, similar to… (More)
