Band 3 glycoprotein purified from human blood group A erythrocyte membranes was subjected to hydrazinolysis to release carbohydrate moieties. The neutral oligosaccharide fraction, which constituted more than 85% of the total carbohydrates released, was fractionated by gel chromatography on a column of Sephadex G-50 into two fractions, i.e. higher molecular weight and lower molecular weight fractions. From the lower molecular weight fraction, three oligosaccharides were obtained by… CONTINUE READING
