Plant lectins are gaining interest because of their interesting biological properties. Several Adenia species, that are being used in traditional medicine to treat many health ailments have shown presence of lectins or carbohydrate binding proteins. Here, we report the purification, characterization and biological significance of N-Acetyl galactosamine specific lectin from Adenia hondala (AHL) from Passifloraceae family. AHL was purified in a single step by affinity chromatography on… 
In Vitro Phytotherapeutic Properties of Aqueous Extracted Adenia viridiflora Craib. towards Civilization Diseases
Investigation of A. viridiflora Craib origins for phenolic compositions and in vitro health properties through the inhibition of key enzymes relevant to obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and hypertension found high total phenolic contents and total flavonoid contents, leading to higher enzyme inhibitory activities than young shoots.


Characterization of a New α-Galactosyl-Binding Lectin from the Mushroom Clavaria purpurea
Among several monosaccharide and disaccharides assayed for dissociation effect on the SGNP-CpL complex, Galα1-3Gal and raffinose were the best inhibitors.
Comparative analysis of carbohydrate binding properties of Sambucus nigra lectins and ribosome-inactivating proteins
A comparative analysis of several lectins from S. nigra using the glycan microarray technology can help to explain how evolution within a single lectin family eventually yielded a set of carbohydrate-binding proteins with a very broad specificity range.
Purification and Characterization of a Lectin from Phaseolus vulgaris cv. (Anasazi Beans)
Chemical modification results indicated that tryptophan was crucial for the hemagglutinating activity of the lectin.
Recognition factors of Ricinus communis agglutinin 1 (RCA(1)).
Galbeta1-4GlcNAc and other Gal beta1-related oligosaccharides are essential for lectin binding and their polyvalent form in macromolecules should be the most important recognition factor for RCA1.
Structure of the O-glycosidically linked carbohydrate units of fetuin.
Abstract Fetuin isolated from fetal calf serum was shown to contain 3 carbohydrate units which are attached to serine and threonine residues on the peptide chain and are distinct from the 3
The asparagine-linked oligosaccharides on bovine fetuin. Structural analysis of N-glycanase-released oligosaccharides by 500-megahertz 1H NMR spectroscopy.
The structures of the entire population of sialylated asparagine-linked oligosaccharides present on bovine fetuin were elucidated and successfully fractionated and characterized as sIALylated species for the first time.
The Asparagine-linked Oligosaccharides on Bovine Fetuin
The structures of the entire population of sialylated asparagine-linked oligosaccharides present on bovine fetuin were elucidated. Asparagine-linked oligosaccharides were released from fetuin with
Characterization of highly toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins from Adenia lanceolata and Adenia stenodactyla (Passifloraceae).
Lanceolin and stenodactylin have all the properties of the toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins and are amongst the most potent toxins of plant origin.
Ribosome-inactivating proteins and other lectins from Adenia (Passifloraceae).
The caudices of 10 Adenia species contain galactose-binding lectins that were purified by affinity chromatography, and the lectins from A. stenodactyla had the highest cytotoxicity, inhibiting cell protein synthesis with IC50s below 0.1 ng/ml, thus being type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins.
Binding and intracellular routing of the plant-toxic lectins, lanceolin and stenodactylin.
The high cytotoxicity of RIPs from the Adenia genus may depend on the following: high affinity binding to the cell and efficient endocytosis, intracellular routing that appears similar to that of other ricin-like toxic RIPs, partial resistance to proteolysis, and, regarding stenodactylin, high accumulation in cell.
