Lectins: production and practical applications
Lectins are proteins found in a diversity of organisms. They possess the ability to agglutinate erythrocytes with known carbohydrate specificity since they have at least one non-catalytic domain that… Expand
Antioxidative activity of natural products from plants.
A variety of flavonoids, lignans, an alkaloid, a bisbenzyl, coumarins and terpenes isolated from Chinese herbs was tested for antioxidant activity as reflected in the ability to inhibit lipid… Expand
Lentin, a novel and potent antifungal protein from shitake mushroom with inhibitory effects on activity of human immunodeficiency virus-1 reverse transcriptase and proliferation of leukemia cells.
From the fruiting bodies of the edible mushroom Lentinus edodes, a novel protein designated lentin with potent antifungal activity was isolated. Lentin was unadsorbed on DEAE-cellulose, and adsorbed… Expand
A new lectin with highly potent antihepatoma and antisarcoma activities from the oyster mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus.
A dimeric lectin, composed of subunits with a molecular weight of 40 and 41 kDa, respectively, and demonstrating similarity in N-terminal sequence to each other and to Aleuria aurantia lectin, was… Expand
Examination of lectins, polysaccharopeptide, polysaccharide, alkaloid, coumarin and trypsin inhibitors for inhibitory activity against human immunodeficiency virus reverse transcriptase and…
A variety of lectins were tested in vitro for inhibitory action against the activities of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase and the N-glycohydrolases… Expand
A non-specific lipid transfer protein with antifungal and antibacterial activities from the mung bean
A non-specific lipid transfer peptide (nsLTP) with antimicrobial activity was isolated from the mung bean (Phaseolus mungo) seeds. The procedure entailed aqueous extraction, ion exchange… Expand
A lectin with mitogenic activity from the edible wild mushroom Boletus edulis
Abstract A melibiose- and xylose-cospecific homodimeric lectin was isolated from fresh fruiting bodies of Boletus edulis. The lectin was isolated using a protocol that consisted of ion exchange… Expand
