Two closely related lectins from bulbs of the Dutch iris (Iris hollandica var. Professor Blaauw) have been isolated and cloned. Both lectins, called Iris agglutinin b and Iris agglutinin r, possess N-glycosidase activity and share a high sequence similarity with previously described type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIP). However, these lectins show only 57% to 59% sequence identity to a previously characterized type 1 RIP from iris, called IRIP. The identification of the iris lectins as… CONTINUE READING
