A lectin was purified from rice flour by aqueous extraction followed by precipitation by ammonium sulfate and affinity chromatography on p-aminobenzyl 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-1-thio-beta-D-glucoside-succinyl-aminohexylaminyl -Sepharose 4B. The molecular weight of the lectin is approximately 36,000, as determined by sedimentation-equilibrium analysis. It is a(More)
Glycosidases like sialidase,β-galactosidase, α-L-fucosidase, N-acetyl hexosaminidase and proteases were detected in toad testis. Neuraminic acid aldolase activity was also detected. The enzyme activities were found to vary as production of spermatozoa varied. All enzymes, except N-acetyl glucosaminidase, were shown to decrease after injection of toad(More)
N-Acetyl-D-glucosamine-binding lectin was isolated and purified from rice by ammonium sulphate fractionation and affinity chromatography using N-acetyl-D-glucosamine linked Sepharose 6B column. It gave a single hand on Polyacrylamide disc gel. It was identified as a glycoprotein. The purified lectin dissociated into two components on Sephadex G-100 column(More)
Faith healing practices are common in the Indian subcontinent, for remedying physical as well as psychiatric disorders. Patients and/ or their family members often resort to such treatment, especially when dissatisfied with the usual medical care or when the patient has a terminal illness. The application of the principles of medical ethics varies across(More)
