|Title:||Iron-binding fragments from the N-Terminal and C-Terminal regions of human lactoferrin|
|Citation:||Biochemical Journal. 171: 321-327|
|Abstract:||Digestion of lactoferrin with pepsin at pH 3.0 gave an iron-binding half-molecule that represents the C-terminal part of the native protein. Tryptic or chymotryptic digestion of 30%/-iron-saturated lactoferrin yielded the N- and C-terminal half molecules, which could be separated by DEAE-Sephadex chromatography. The N- and C-terminal fragments did not show any immunological cross-reaction. The carbohydrate of lactoferrin was distributed equally between the two fragments.|
