Component 5 is one of the four type II intermediate-filament proteins found in the hard keratin wool. It was isolated as the S-carboxymethyl derivative from Merino wool and its amino acid sequence was determined by manual and automatic sequencing of peptides produced by chemical and enzymic cleavage. Component 5 is an N-terminally blocked molecule of 503… CONTINUE READING
