Figure 2: L-ficolin structure. The glycosylated gene product of Mr 35 K forms a basic triplet subunit. The subunit can form higher multimers, of which the 12-mer ( 4 × 3 ) is thought to be the most abundant in serum. The inset (right) shows a typical western blot after electrophoresis of L-ficolin under nonreducing conditions.
