The complete amino acid sequences of the α-subunits of pea (Pisum sativum L.) seed and root lectin, the C-terminal amino acids of the β-subunits of pea seed lectin, and most of the sequence of the β-subunit of pea root lectin were determined. In contrast to earlier reports it was shown that the β-subunits of both seed isolectins end at Asn-181. The α1 subunits end at Gln-241 (major fraction) or Lys-240 (minor fraction), whereas the α2 subunits end at Ser-239, Ser-238, Ser-237 or Thr-236. psl… CONTINUE READING
