Bauhinia pentandra (Bong) Vog. ex. Steua seeds were investigated with respect to phenologic aspects (size, mass, hilum and length) and with respect to their chemical composition. The total nitrogen content of the seed flour was determined, and the flour was extracted in different pH values. A lectin was isolated from the seeds by Sepharose-4B affinity chromatography. The homogeneity of the lectin was demonstrated by SDS-PAGE in the presence of β-mercaptoethanol. Only one protein band with an… CONTINUE READING
