The hemolymph proteins of the acorn barnacle Megabalanus rosa were separated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. More than 50 proteins were observed in the region of acidic (pl: 4-7) with masses of 18-120 kDa. The proteins separated on the gel were electroblotted onto a polyvinylidene difluoride membrane and were sequenced. Several major proteins were further characterized by amino acid analysis and peptide mapping, and identified to be multiple lectins.
