Abstract
Fractionation of the soluble chicken eggshell matrix by chromatographic methods yielded 13 endogenous proteolytic fragments of the eggshell-specific proteoglycan core protein ovocleidin-116. The N-terminal amino acid sequences of these fragments in general confirmed the recently cDNA-deduced sequence of ovocleidin-116, with one exception. One fragment yielded a completely new sequence and was instrumental in detecting a frame shift error in the nucleotide sequence. The correction yielded a new sequence which was 38 amino acids shorter than before and contained a 57-amino acid long novel C- terminal sequence.(1) The predicted sequence of ovocleidin-116 contained two consensus N-glycosylation sites, only one of which (Asn62) was found to be fully modified. A disulfide bond was identified between Cys31 and 42 implying that Cys329 and 421 form a second disulfide bond. Finally, the yield of fragments indicated that ovocleidin-116 is a major component of the chicken eggshell matrix. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. and International Society of Matrix Biology.
