Identification of some proteins of blood and tissue fluid in the fish with enciphered genome

Comparative and Ontogenic Biochemistry


Applying proteomics methods, ependymins, vitellogenins, immunoglobulins and albumin-like proteins (ALP) were identified in the blood and tissue fluid of pacific redfin, scorpaena, sterlet and two ray species. For all proteins, except ALP, identification by tandem MALDI mass- spectrometry was successful. The reconstruction of amino acid fragments sequences was performed using databases of fish proteins with sequenced genome and that of mammals. The problems with ALP identification are associated with high level of their structural variety and absence of resemblance with mammalian proteins.
