Use of an affinity immunosorbent for the isolation of lactoferrin from breast milk serum

  • A. A. Buglanov


An affinity or biospecific method of isolating an iron-binding glycoprotein — lactoferrin — from breast milk is described which permits in a single chromatographic operation the isolation of lactoferrin homogeneous according to the results of electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gel. The affinity method of isolating lactoferrin is based on the use of a specific immunosorbent consisting of antibodies to lactoferrin covalently conjugated with cyanogen-bromide-activated Sepharose 4B.
