  author={Sobhy A. A. Al-Sohaimy and Elsayed E Hafez and Abeer Abdel-Wahab and Mohamed A. El-Saadani},
Lectins are carbohydrate binding proteins expressed in plants, animals and microorganisms and have been used to probe the surface properties of a wide range of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. The implication of some lectin molecules in several physiological processes has been claimed. The aim of this work is to purify the lectin from Egyptian pea (Pisum sativum) seeds and study its biochemical characterizations and potential as pharmaceutical compound. Egyptian Pea lectin seeds was purified… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Antifungal and antibacterial activities of lectin from the seeds of Archidendron jiringa Nielsen
The hemagglutination activity of lectin was relatively insensitive to acidic pH above 2, had an optimal activity at pH 8, and was stable below 45 °C for 30 min, which indicated similarity with legume lectin family. Expand
The Potential Anticancer Action of Lectin Extracted from Pisum sativum Against Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cell Lines
Lectin may have a vigorous role in achievement of hepatocarcinoma therapy plan as lectin had the ability to upregulate the gene expression of P53 and IκBα and down regulates Bax and Bcl2. Expand
Purification, characterization, and biological activities of broccolini lectin
BL retained full hemagglutinating activity at pH 7–8 and temperature 30–40°C, and had an optimal activity in Ca2+ solution, suggesting that BL should be promising in food and medicine. Expand
Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Anti-HCV Activities of Lignan Extracted from Flaxseed
Flaxseed is one dietary source which contains considerable amount of phenolics namely lignans that have beneficial health effects. Lignans are important plant phenolic compounds that have been shownExpand
Background: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is gaining increasing attention as a global health crisis. HCV may lead to a substantial health and, consequently, economic burden over the next 10-20Expand
Antiviral activity and mode of action of Dianthus caryophyllus L. and Lupinus termes L. seed extracts against in vitro herpes simplex and hepatitis A viruses infection.
These seed extracts were more efficient in their inhibitory activity than synthetic chemical drugs against the same viruses and may open the way to give more attention to use the natural botanical origin in treatmenting viral infection with or without therapeutic agents to obtain better recovery with least side effects.

Purification and Characterization of a Lectin from Crotalaria paulina Seeds
A lectin was purified from Crotalaria paulina seeds by ion-exchange and FPLC molecular exclusion chromatography and inhibited the growth of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. Expand
Isolation and Characterization of a Lectin from Annona muricata Seeds
The lectin agglutinated dog, chicken, horse, goose, and human erythrocytes and inhibited the growth of the fungi Fusarium oxysporum, FUSarium solani, and Colletotrichum musae. Expand
Mannan binding lectin and viral hepatitis.
The effect of MBL2 polymorphisms on MBL function and how this may relate to disease outcome in HBV and HCV infection are summarized. Expand
Surface array proteins of Campylobacter fetus block lectin-mediated binding to type A lipopolysaccharide
Results indicate that the three lectins bind to the O side chains of C. fetus type A LPS but that the presence of the S-layer on intact cells blocks binding. Expand
Isolation and Partial Characterization of a Seed Lectin from Tepary Bean that Delays Bruchid Beetle Development.
Four isolectin forms of a seed lectin from mature seed of tepary bean (Phaseolus acutifolius) were isolated using solubility fractionation, affinity chromatography, and high performance liquidExpand
Mannose-binding plant lectins: different structural scaffolds for a common sugar-recognition process.
Structural diversity associated with the specific recognition of high-mannose type glycans highlights the importance of mannose-specific lectins as recognition molecules in higher plants. Expand
Conformation, protein-carbohydrate interactions and a novel subunit association in the refined structure of peanut lectin-lactose complex.
The structure of peanut lectin demonstrates that the variability in quaternary association in legume lectins, despite all of them having nearly the same tertiary structure, is not necessarily caused by covalently bound carbohydrate. Expand

Engineering proteins that bind to cell surface carbohydrates.
Protein engineering offers a way round problems of affinity and lack of specificity in carbohydrate structures, such as polysialic acid, and enzymes may be useful analytical tools. Expand
A simple method for the isolation and purification of total lipides from animal tissues.
A simplified version of the method for the preparation and purification of brain lipides has the advantage of being simpler, of being applicable to any scale desired, of substantially decreasing the losses of lipides incidental to the washing process, and of yielding a washed extract which can be taken to dryness without foaming and without splitting of the proteolipides.
