Fourteen structural subunits of hemocyanins from two different infraorders of crustacea, brachyura (Maia squinado, Carcinus maenas) and astacidea (Homarus americanus) were isolated and characterized. N-terminal amino acid sequences were determined and compared with known sequences of crustacean and cheliceratan hemocyanins. Relationships between the investigated polypeptide chains were established. The results demonstrate that the degree of identity, calculated from the amino terminal sequences… CONTINUE READING
