Characterization of carbohydrate combining sites of Bryohealin, an algal lectin from Bryopsis plumosa

Abstract

Bryohealin is a lectin involved in the wound-healing process of the marine green alga Bryopsis plumosa. In the previous purification study, it has been shown that lectin was composed of two identical subunits of 27 kDa, cross-linked by disulfide bond, and showed binding specificity to N-acetyl-d-glucosamine and N-acetyl-d-galactosamine (GlcNAc and GalNAc… (More)
