Structure of mannose-specific snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) lectin is representative of a new plant lectin family
Tetrameric Galanthus nivalis agglutinin (50,000 M r) belongs to a super-family of α-D-mannose-specific plant bulb lectins known to be potent inhibitors of retroviruses. The 2.3 Å crystal structure ofExpand

Isolation and characterization of a second lectin (SNA-II) present in elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) bark.
A second lectin (SNA-II) has been isolated from elderberry (Sambucus nigra L.) bark by affinity chromatography on immobilized asialo-glycophorin. This lectin is a blood group nonspecific glycoproteinExpand

Elucidation of the mechanism enhancing the avidity of lectin with oligosaccharides on the solid phase surface.
The mechanism underlying molecular recognition of lectins was elucidated by a novel solid phase binding assay system based on surface plasmon resonance. When the apparent affinities of interactionsExpand

A cell wall-bound β-glucosidase from germinated rice : Purification and properties
Abstract A cell wall-bound β-glucosidase was purified from germinated rice seeds, and its N-terminal amino acid sequence was determined. The enzyme had a molecularmass of 56 kDa and an isoelectricExpand

Crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction results of snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) lectin.
Well-ordered single crystals have been grown for a mannose-specific lectin from snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) bulbs in the presence of methyl-alpha-D-mannoside. The space group symmetry is consistentExpand

Biosynthesis, primary structure and molecular cloning of snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis L.) lectin.
Poly(A)-rich RNA isolated from ripening ovaries of snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis L.) yielded a single 17-kDa lectin polypeptide upon translation in a wheat-germ cell-free system. This lectin wasExpand

Interactions of five D-mannose-specific lectins with a series of synthetic branched trisaccharides.
The interaction of a series of synthetic, branched trisaccharides with five D-mannose-specific lectins was studied by precipitation-inhibition assay. The branched methyl alpha-D-mannotrioside,Expand

Isolation, cDNA cloning, biological properties, and carbohydrate binding specificity of sieboldin-b, a type II ribosome-inactivating protein from the bark of Japanese elderberry (Sambucus
A type II ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP) was isolated from the bark tissue of Japanese elderberry (Sambucus sieboldiana) and named sieboldin-b. Sieboldin-b is a heterodimeric protein consistingExpand
