A new agglutinating activity from wheat flour inhibited by tryptophan.


A new compound endowed with agglutinating activity, designated the flour agglutinin, was extracted from wheat flour with water and purified by gel filtration and ion-exchange chromatography. The haptenic inhibitors of the plant agglutinins do not affect flour agglutinin activity which, on the other hand, is inhibited by D- and L-tryptophan. Flour agglutinin… (More)
