    Results: Hemelipoglycoprotein from sheep tick Dermacentor marginatus plasma was purified in native state by immunoprecipitation and denatured using electroelution from SDS-PAGE separated plasma. The protein (290 kDa) contains two subunits with molecular weights 100 and 95 kDa. It is glycosylated by high-mannose and complex N-glycans HexNAc(2)Hex(9), HexNAc(2)Hex(10), HexNAc(4)Hex(7), and HexNAc(4)Hex(8). The purified protein is able to agglutinate red blood cells and has galactose-and mannose-binding specificity. Feeding does not increase its amounts in male plasma. The hemelipoglycoprotein was detected also in hemocytes, salivary glands, and gut. In salivary glands, the protein was present in both glycosylated and nonglycosylated forms. In hemolymph, it is present in complexes with putative fibrinogen-related proteins. This, together with its carbohydrate-binding activity, suggests its possible involvement in tick innate immunity.
