Purification and evidence for the identity of chicken plasma and egg yolk retinol-retinol binding protein-prealbumin complex


Purification and evidence for the identity of chicken plasma and egg yolk retinol-retinol binding protein-prealbumin complex

Retinol (vitamin A)-retinol binding protein-prealbumin complex was isolated and purified from chicken plasma and hen's egg yolk by repeated chromatography on ion exchange and gel filtration columns. Chicken plasma and egg yolk retinol-retinol binding protein-prealbumin complex were similar in MW, electrophoretic mobility, amino acid composition, spectroscopic properties and dissociability in low ionic strength buffers. No retinol-retinol binding protein was found in the egg albumin. The materials isolated from chicken plasma and egg yolk, respectively, were therefore judged to be identical. The recent finding of specific cell surface receptors in target organs for retinol binding protein (Heller, J., J. Biol. Chem. 250, 3613, 1975) makes feasible a study of the ontogenesis of these receptors in the developing chick embryo.
