Fatty acid-binding protein in bovine longissimus dorsi muscle.
Additional Document Info
Experiments were conducted to purify and obtain amino acid sequence data for fatty acid-binding protein from bovine longissimus dorsi muscle. 1. Separation of sarcoplasmic proteins by fractionation on Sephadex and DEAE cellulose columns indicated that a low abundance fatty acid-binding protein exists in bovine l. dorsi muscle. 2. Fatty acid-binding protein in bovine l. dorsi muscle cannot be separated from myoglobin by standard protein purification procedures. However, partial sequencing of a partially purified protein fraction indicated the presence of an NH2-terminally blocked protein. 3. Myoglobin bound palmitate under the in vitro conditions of these experiments.
