We have purified and characterized pig and bovine milk lactadherins. Studies by circular dichroism spectroscopy indicate that the two proteins present a similar folding pattern. Results have been discussed in terms of their affinity for pig zona pellucida in order to use these proteins as analogs of pig sperm lactadherin in gamete studies.
