One of the determinants of the lifetime of circulating glycoproteins is their content of the terminal carbohydrate sialic acid. In order to elucidate a possible mechanism behind reduced concentration of IgG in patients with myotonic dystrophy, serum IgG was isolated by affinity chromatography and its content of sialic acid determined. No difference between… CONTINUE READING
