The activity and specificity of a galactose-specific and a mannose-specific jacalin-related lectin from the bark of the black mulberry (Morus nigra) tree has been re-investigated using different experimental approaches. Both lectins definitely behave as polyspecific lectins recognizing galactose, mannose, and glucose even though MornigaG and MornigaM interact preferentially with galactose and mannose, respectively. The exceptionally extended size of the carbohydrate-binding site of both lectins… CONTINUE READING
