The seed lectin from Canavalia gladiata was purified and crystallized. Orthorhombic crystals belonging to space group C222(1) grew within three weeks at 293 K using the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. Using synchrotron X-ray radiation, a complete structural data set was collected at 2.3 A resolution. The preliminary crystal structure of the lectin,(More)
BACKGROUND Lectins are mainly described as simple carbohydrate-binding proteins. Previous studies have tried to identify other binding sites, which possible recognize plant hormones, secondary metabolites, and isolated amino acid residues. We report the crystal structure of a lectin isolated from Canavalia gladiata seeds (CGL), describing a new binding(More)
