Purification of Carcinoembryonic Antigen by Removal of Contaminating Mucopolysaccharides

Academic Article


  • The fraction of carcinoembryonic antigen preparations not bound by concanavalin A was studied. A significant portion of this nonbound fraction of low antigenic activity was shown to be mucopolysaccharides by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, cellulose acetate strip electrophoresis, and depolymerization by bovine testicular hyaluronidase. © 1976, American Association for Cancer Research.
