Binding studies on the combining site of a GalNAc alpha 1-->-specific lectin with Thomsen-Friedenreich activity prepared from green marine algae Codium fragile subspecies tomentosoides.

Abstract

The combining site of a GalNAc alpha 1-->-specific lectin (CFT) with Thomsen-Friedenreich (T, Gal beta 1-->3-GalNAc alpha 1-->Ser/Thr) activity, purified from the subspecies tomentosoides of green marine algae Codium fragile was studied by quantitative precipitin and precipitin-inhibition assays. Of 27 glycoforms tested, Tn (GalNAc alpha 1-->Ser/Thr… (More)
