The glycosylation of murine C4 (Ss protein) synthesized by peritoneal macrophages has been investigated. Both the intracellular precursor, P-C4 (185), and the C4 α- and β-chains that were secreted into medium were found to be glycosylated; however, no carbohydrate units were detected on the γ-chain. Analyses of the oligosaccharide units showed that P-C4 (185) appears to contain both a 'complex' and a 'high mannose' carbohydrate group, the α-chain a 'complex' group and the β-chain a 'high mannose' carbohydrate unit.
