A lectin specific for chito-oligosaccharides from the exudate of ridge gourd (Luffa acutangula) fruits has been purified to homogeneity by affinity chromatography. The lectin has a molecular weight of 48,000, an S(0)20,w of 4.06 S and a Stokes radius of 2.9 nm. Upon sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, a single band corresponding to Mr(More)
Coccinia indica agglutinin (CIA) is a chitooligosaccharide-specific lectin with two binding sites/homodimer of M(r) 32,000. Quenching studies implied tryptophan involvement in binding activity, which was confirmed by chemical modification experiments (A. R. Sanadi and A. Surolia, submitted for publication). Binding of 4-methylumbelliferyl(More)
Palm kernel press cake (PKC) is a residue from palm oil extraction presently only used as a low protein feed supplement. PKC contains 50% fermentable hexose sugars present in the form of glucan and mainly galactomannan. This makes PKC an interesting feedstock for processing into bioethanol or in other biorefinery processes. Using a combination of mannanase,(More)
Glycophorin A is a major receptor on human erythrocytes for Plasmodium falciparum, the human malaria parasite. In this work, we have produced four glycophorin A-specific mAb: 2B10, 1E4, 3H12, and 3H2. 2B10 was mapped to the amino terminal region of glycophorin (amino acids 1-31), and its binding to erythrocytes was fully dependent on sialic acid residues.(More)
To study the regulation of mucin synthesis in canine tracheal epithelial cells, it is desirable to establish a cell line which synthesizes mucin continuously. We adopted the approach of immortalizing canine tracheal epithelial cells using a vector encoding the human papillomavirus (type 18) E6 and E7 genes. The E6 and E7 genes are essential and sufficient(More)
The utilization of wheat straw as a renewable energy resource is limited due to its low bulk density. Pelletizing wheat straw into fuel pellets of high density increases its handling properties but is more challenging compared to pelletizing woody biomass. Straw has a lower lignin content and a high concentration of hydrophobic waxes on its outer surface(More)
