Pinellia ternata agglutinin (PTA) from the tubers of P. ternata is a monocot mannose-binding lectin that catalytically agglutinated rabbit erythrocytes. The potential effect of PTA has gained considerable interest in recent years owing to clinical use of native PTA as the preparation against cancer and for plant protection against insect pests.
