Abstract

The human plasma protein alpha-2-HS-glycoprotein (A2HS, Schultze et al. 1962) was first described separately by Heremans (1960) and Schmid and Bürgi (1961). A2HS consists of one polypeptide chain with a molecular weight of 49000 D. The content of carbohydrate amounts to 13.4% (Schmid/Bürgi 1961) and of sialic acids to 4.1% (Putnam 1975). Lewis/Andre 1978).
