The skin mucus of the conger eel, Conger myriaster, contains galactose-specific agglutinins. Hemagglutinating activity is independent of divalent cations and is destroyed by heating at 50 degrees C for 15 min. The mucus agglutinins, named congerins, are a mixture of proteins with different electrical charges. Three of these molecules were isolated by affinity chromatography on acid-treated Sepharose 4B and by ion-exchange chromatography. They are simple proteins with the same molecular weight… CONTINUE READING
