By a combination of solubility fractionation, affinity and molecular-sieve chromatography, a lectin preparation containing several closely related lectin components of different isoelectric point was isolated from the seeds of Dioclea grandiflora Mart. The lectins showed a carbohydrate specificty for D-mannose (D-glucose)-binding and had a requirement for the presence of Ca2+ and Mn2+. The results of preliminary characterization studies showed that the D. grandiflora lectins had similar… CONTINUE READING
