Plasma fibronectin is a glycoprotein that consists of two polypeptide chains of approximately 250,000 and 245,000 daltons, joined by disulfide bonds located near one end of the molecule. Fibronectin was isolated from human plasma by gelatin-agarose affinity chromatography and DEAE-cellulose ion exchange chromatography. The two subunit chains were found to be similar or identical with respect to primary structure, using a one-dimensional peptide mapping technique.
