Protein sizes

  1. Aug 19, 2005 #1
    Can anyone please help me to find the sizes (Da) for these human pituitary proteins? i have looked for them in Entrez and other bioinformatic sites, but am really not sure if they are right. Please, recheck them for me. Thanks a bunch!

    1. Glycoprotein hormones alpha chain

    i have a vERY hard time with this one. from the Entrez result i only get
    Glycoprotein hormones alpha chain precursor form (13041 Da). i need an active form. What is the size? :yuck:

    2. Variant hepatic nuclear factor 1
    From entrez i got an active form of 166aa. Is this correct?

    3. Human B-actin
    active form: 41737 Da. Correct?

    4. Folate receptor alpha
    active form: 96 aa. Correct?

    Thanks !!! o:)

    You can always predict the molecular weight and post-translational modification of your protein if you have the amino acid sequence:
