A galactose-specific lectin from the red marine alga Ptilota filicina.

Abstract

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 preference for type O erythrocytes. The lectin was inhibited by galactose and its derivatives. The most potent inhibitors were p-Nitrophenyl-N-acetyl-alpha- and beta-D… (More)
