Circular dichroism and conformational transitions of leucoagglutinin.

Conformational transitions of leucoagglutinin from kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) were studied by the circular dichroism (CD) probe. The CD spectrum of leucoagglutinin in the far ultraviolet zone was similar to the spectrum of concanavalin A, indicating the presence of high amount of the beta pleated sheet structure. The CD spectrum of the leucoagglutinin… (More)
