Mucoproteins (glycoproteins), Biology

MUCOPROTEINS (GLYCOPROTEINS)

  1. Proteins having conjugated mucosaccharides that form viscous mucus or mucoid secretions.
  2. The gastric mucus or mucoprotein is resistant to pepsin action and protects the gastric mucosa from acidic, enzymatic and mechanical damage.
  3. Intestinal mucus similarly protects the intestinal wall.
  4. Mucus of respiratory tract and cervical mucus are protective against microbial attack.
  5. Algin is obtained from laminaria, corageen is obtained from chondrus.
