The carbohydrate composition of J chain from human serum and secretory IgA

Academic Article

Abstract

  • J chains prepared from human serum IgA and human secretory IgA both contained 7.6% total carbohydrate. The monosaccharide compositions were similar and on the basis of a molecular weight of 26 000 each J chain contained 1 mole fucose, 3 moles mannose, 2 moles galactose, 3-4 moles glucosamine and 1 mole of sialic acid. © 1972.
