The ice-binding site of sea raven antifreeze protein is distinct from the carbohydrate-binding site of the homologous C-type lectin

Loewen, M. C. ; Gronwald, Wolfram ; Sonnichsen, F. D. ; Sykes, B. D. ; Davies, P. L.


Antifreeze proteins lower the freezing point of their solution by binding to ice and inhibiting its growth. One of several structurally different antifreeze proteins in fishes (type II) is homologous to the carbohydrate-recognition domain of Ca2+-dependent lectins and adopts the same three-dimensional fold. Type II antifreeze proteins from herring and smelt require Ca2+ for binding to ice, ...
