Sulfated glycoprotein-1 is one of the major protein secretion products of rat Sertoli cells in culture. This 70,000 Mr protein shares substantial sequence similarity with human prosaposin, the precursor of lysosomal saposins. Saposins are known to enhance the activity of lipid modifying enzymes presumably by solubilizing the lipids. We report here the… CONTINUE READING
