Abstract

Abstract The complete amino acid sequence (458 amino acid residues) of human group-specific component 2 (Gc2) protein was determined. Computer analyses established a three-fold internal homology of Gc2 protein as well as an extensive homology between the overall structures of Gc2 protein, human serum albumin and human α-fetoprotein.
