CvL, a lectin from the marine sponge Cliona varians was purified by acetone fractionation followed by Sepharose CL 4B affinity chromatography. CvL agglutinated papainized treated human erythrocytes with preference for type A erythrocytes. The lectin was strongly inhibited by monosaccharide d-galactose and disaccharide sucrose. CvL is a tetrameric(More)
Proteinaceous inhibitors with high inhibitory activities against human neutrophil elastase (HNE) were found in seeds of the Tamarind tree (Tamarindus indica). A serine proteinase inhibitor denoted PG50 was purified using ammonium sulphate and acetone precipitation followed by Sephacryl S-300 and Sephadex G-50 gel filtration chromatographies. Inhibitor PG50(More)
Seeds from legumes including the Gilcine max are known to be a rich source of protease inhibitors. The soybean Kunitz trypsin inhibitors (SKTIs) have been well characterised and have been found to exhibit many biological activities. However their effects on inflammatory diseases have not been studied to date. In this study, SKTI was purified using anion(More)
