Abstract

The molecular weights of the fully glycosylated cell surface form and the unglycosylated polypeptide of five murine class I antigens (H-2Kb, Db, TL, Qa-1.1, and Qa-2) were compared by SDS-PAGE. Significant molecular weight diversity was observed for both forms among these molecules. The size of the fully glycosylated forms ranged from approximately 52,000 daltons (H-2Db) to 41,000 daltons (Qa-2), whereas the unglycosylated polypeptides ranged from 43,000 daltons (H-2Kb and TL) to 33,000 daltons (Qa-2). The magnitude of the size variation observed in the unglycosylated polypeptides implies that there are differences in the gene organization, RNA processing or post-translational modifications of various class I glycoproteins.
