Elastin and Glycoprotein Definitions
A protein similar to collagen that is the principal structural component of elastic fibers.
Any of a group of conjugated proteins having a carbohydrate as the nonprotein component.
(protein) A protein, similar to collagen, found in connective tissue, that has elastic properties.
(protein) A protein with covalently bonded carbohydrates.
A nitrogenous substance, somewhat resembling albumin, which forms the chemical basis of elastic tissue. It is very insoluble in most fluids, but is gradually dissolved when digested with either pepsin or trypsin.
A conjugated protein having a carbohydrate component
