Abstract

Fish type III antifreeze protein is homologous to the C-terminal region of mammalian sialic acid synthase. Similarity is greatest in the protein core and the flat ice-binding region. This relationship adds to the growing list of links between ice-binding proteins (antifreezes) and proteins that interact with sugars and polysaccharides.
