A galactose-specific lectin from the red marine alga Ptilota filicina.
A lectin from the red marine alga Ptilota filicina (PFL) was isolated by affinity chromatography on cross-linked guar gum. PFL agglutinated native and papain-treated human erythrocytes with… Expand
Marine algal lectins: new developments
Lectins can be extracted more readily from marine algae if the plant material is freeze-dried or frozen in liquid nitrogen prior to homogenisation. The addition of detergents, such as Tween 80, to… Expand
Isolation and Characterization of the Lectin from the Green Marine Alga Ulva lactuca L.
A lectin from the green marine alga Ulva lactuca was isolated by a combination of affinity chromatography on porcine stomach mucin-Sepharose 6B and gel filtration on Sephadex G-50. Ulva lactuca… Expand
Cis-regulatory analysis of the sea urchin pigment cell gene polyketide synthase.
The Strongylocentrotus purpuratus polyketide synthase gene (SpPks) encodes an enzyme required for the biosynthesis of the larval pigment echinochrome. SpPks is expressed exclusively in pigment cells… Expand

Anticoagulant properties of sulphated polysaccharides and a proteoglycan from Codium fragile ssp. atlanticum
A high molecular weight sulphated (18.4%) proteoglycan was isolated from extracts of Codium fragile ssp. atlanticum by molecular exclusion chromatography on Sepharose 2B. Ion exchange chromatography,… Expand
New affinity procedure for the isolation and further characterization of the blood group B specific lectin from the red marine alga Ptilota plumosa
The red marine alga Ptilota plumosa has been shownto contain an anti-human blood group B lectin. We report here a new isolationprocedure by affinity chromatography on Sephadex G-200 and… Expand
