The isolation of "link proteins" from bovine nasal cartilage.

Methods of isolating the water insoluble 'link proteins' from preparations of bovine nasal cartilage proteoglycan aggregates have been investigated. Upon chromatography on Sepharose 4B in 0.1% sodium dodecyl sulfate, the 'link proteins' are found in a discrete, included peak, whereas the bulk of the proteoglycan emerges at the void volume. Some low… CONTINUE READING
