Microcystis viridis NIES-102 strain, a unicellular freshwater bloom-forming cyanobacterium, showed transient hemagglutinating activity in laboratory culture during stationary phase under nonaeration conditions. However, the hemagglutinating activity which was inhibited with yeast mannan could not be observed during culture with aeration. A mannan-binding lectin named MVL was isolated with the assay of the hemagglutinating activity against rabbit erythrocytes from the cyanobacterium by… CONTINUE READING
