Identification of gp17 glycoprotein and characterization of prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) and carboxypeptidase E (CPE) fragments in a human seminal plasma fraction interacting with concanavalin A.

The decapacitating fraction of human seminal plasma, which strongly interacts with concanavalin A, is constituted by high mannose-type N-linked glycoproteins, most of them of less than 44 kDa. Each component with apparent molecular mass of 30, 18, and 17 kDa respectively, as judged by SDS-PAGE, was submitted to "in gel" digestion with trypsin followed by HPLC separation of the peptides and sequencing. They were characterized at microscale as gp17, an aspartyl protease that possibly contributes to liquefaction of the seminal plasma coagulum, two fragments of human acid phosphatase (17 and 30 kDa, respectively), and a 17-kDa fragment of carboxypeptidase E. Neither the fragments of prostatic acid phosphatase nor that of carboxypeptidase E had been described before in the human seminal fluid. Very weak bands, of apparent molecular masses 44 and 52 kDa, are consistent with presence of small amounts of parent compounds, prostatic acid phosphatase and carboxypeptidase E.[1]
