Lectins from the lichen Xanthoria parietina develop arginase activity. One of these lectins behaves as a secreted arginase whereas another is an endocellular enzyme. Both enzymes are glycosylated proteins differing in the occurrence of galactose instead of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine in secreted arginase. The affinity for the algal ligand (glycosylated cell wall urease) of secreted arginase is higher than that shown for the endocellular enzyme. When the lectin ligand is absent from the algal cell… CONTINUE READING
