Lectins were precipitated by ammonium sulphate precipitation method. Carbohydrate and proteins were detected by thin layer chromatography and infrared spectroscopy techniques. Crude lectins were partially characterized by its binding affinity with human erythrocytes by hemagglutination inhibition assay and their molecular weights were determined by SDS-page gel electrophoresis. The amount of proteins was quantitatively measured by Lowry method. Antibacterial and antifungal activities were… Expand

Antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of Penicillium sp. lectins
Lectins are a diverse group of proteins of non-immune origin that interact specifically with glycans. Owing to their specificity, they can mediate various cellular and molecular recognitionExpand
Biochemical characterization of wheat seed lectin and its antifungal activity against seed-borne Fusarium graminearum in-vitro and in-situ
The study shows that lectin can be applied as an antifungal agent against wheat damping-off against the fungus Fusarium graminearum in vitro. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of a crude peptide extract from lablab bean (Dolichos lablab) for semi-dried rice noodles shelf-life
This study suggests the application of adding CPL could be used as new natural additive and seems to be promising to apply in many food products such as pasta or sausages. Expand
The Bryophyllum pinnatum refers to the family Crassulaceae. The glycoprotein from the 0.9% of normal saline extracts of Bryophyllum pinnatum leaves was refined by dialysis with 50% of ammoniumExpand

Purification and biological effects of Araucaria angustifolia (Araucariaceae) seed lectin.
AaL, intravenously injected into rats, showed anti-inflammatory effect, via carbohydrate site interaction, in the models of paw edema and peritonitis and can be used as a tool for studying bacterial infections and inflammatory processes. Expand
Purification and characterization of lectin II from Ulex europaeus seeds and an immunochemical study of its combining site.
Inhibition of precipitation indicated that the lectin site was unusual in that it interacted most strongly with the h -specific oligosaccharide and with 2′-fucosyllactose, followed by β1 → 4 linked oligomers of d GlcNAc. Expand
Extraction and Purification of a Lectin from Red Kidney Bean and Preliminary Immune Function Studies of the Lectin and Four Chinese Herbal Polysaccharides
The reverse micellar system was compared with traditional extraction methods and demonstrated to be a time-saving method for the extraction of red kidney bean lectin and enhanced mouse nonspecific immunity. Expand
Isolation and partial characterization of an N-acetylgalactosamine-specific lectin from winter-aconite (Eranthis hyemalis) root tubers.
The winter-aconite lectin is the first lectin to be isolated from a species belonging to the plant family Ranunculaceae, and appears to be different from all previously described plant lectins. Expand
The nature of lectins from Dolichos lablab
The lectins from the seeds of Dolichos lablab var. lignosus (field bean) and Dolichos lablab var. typicus (lablab bean) have been isolated in a homogeneous form by affinity chromatography onExpand
Screening of radical scavenging activity and polyphenol content of Bulgarian plant species
The antioxidant potential of the new species includes several unstudied until now plant species that have not been traditionally used as medicinal plants and is comparable to that of reference medicinal plants. Expand
Rotenoids from Lablab purpureus L. and their bioefficacy against human disease vectors
Toxicological studies of extracts showed bioefficacy against causal agents of malaria, dracunculiasis, and amoebiasis and rotenoids in Lablab purpureus L. were isolated, identified, and quantified both in vivo and in vitro. Expand
Legume lectins interact with muramic acid and N‐acetylmuramic acid
Interactions of many lectins, especially those specific for Glc/Man, specifically interact with MurAc and MurNAc often to a greater extent than with other monosaccharides and their derivatives, such as N‐acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) and sialic acid. Expand

19 weakly saccharolytic Bacteroides strains of different species were tested by thin-layer chromatography (TLC) for their fermentative abilities for fructose, sucrose, lactose, galactose, and raffinose and a good agreement between both methods was recorded. Expand
Protein measurement with the Folin phenol reagent.
Procedures are described for measuring protein in solution or after precipitation with acids or other agents, and for the determination of as little as 0.2 gamma of protein. Expand
