概要

The purpose of this study was to elucidate the structure of disaccharide and the nature of its linkage to protein moiety of sialic acid-containing glycoprotein (SA-glycoprotein) isolated from eel skin mucus. The disaccharide of SA-glycoprotein was identified as N-acetylneuraminyl-(α, 2→6)-N-acetyl-galactosamine by periodate oxidation, analysis of the SMITH degradation product, and susceptibility to neuraminidase. The analysis of the sialic acid-containing glycopeptide which had been extensively digested with Pronase P showed that threonine and serine residues Were the only identifiable acceptors to the disaccharide units of eel SA-glycoprotein, indicating that the disaccharide units are O-glycosidically linked to the hydroxyl amino acids such as threonine and serine residues of SA-glycoprotein. This is the first, fish skin mucous glycoprotein which was elucidated concerning the structure of the carbohydrate unit and the carbohydrate-protein linkage. The function of eel SA-glycoprotein is also discussed.
