Abstract

Previous studies have reported1 the isolation of a mucoprotein of 51,200 daltons molecular weight. Its aminoacid composition is mainly glycine and glutamic acid. The carbohydrate accounts for 30% of its structure. It has hexoses, hexosamines and small amounts of hexuronic and sialic acids.
