A lectin (APL) was isolated from the mushroom Amantia pantherina by means of hydrophobic chromatography on Butyl-Toyopearl, affinity chromatography on bovine submaxillary mucin (BSM)-Toyopearl and gel filtration on Superose 12 HR10/30 using a FPLC system. This lectin is composed of two identical subunits of 22 kDa and the molecular mass of the intact lectin was estimated to be 43 kDa by gel filtration. In hemagglutination inhibition assays, it exhibits sugar-binding specificities towards GlcNAc… CONTINUE READING
