The major serum protein of fetal and newborn pigs: biochemical properties and identification as a fetal form of alpha 1-acid glycoprotein.


The major protein component of fetal pig serum, has been immunologically identified as alpha 1-acid glycoprotein (orosomucoid). Amino acid composition and total carbohydrate content (around 38% by weight) were similar in the adult and fetal forms of alpha 1-acid glycoprotein. These forms differ, however, in the proportion of individual monosaccharides… (More)
