Binding and functional properties of concanavalin A and its derivatives. III. Interactions with indoleacetic acid and other hydrophobic ligands.


The binding of concanavalin A to various structures via hydrophobic interactions has been studied using a variety of physicochemical assays. It was found that concanavalin A binds to nonpolar compounds such as the plant auxin beta-indoleacetic acid and its structural analogue tryptophan and that this binding is independent of the saccharide-binding activity… (More)
