Abstract A lectin was isolated from the seeds of Erythrina vespertilio by affinity chromatography on lactose-Sepharose 6B. The lectin has an M , of 59 000 and consists of two non-covalently associated subunits ( M , ∼ 30 000). The lectin is devoid of cysteine but has six methionine residues/mol and a neutral sugar content of 9.7% The carbohydrate composition was mannose, N -acetylglucosamine, fucose, xylose and galactose in amounts of 15.0, 4.0, 1.0, 5.0 and 25 mol/59 000 g, respectively… CONTINUE READING
