Physico-chemical and unfolding studies have been carried out on Trichosanthes dioica seed lectin (TDSL). The lectin exhibited maximum activity between pH 7.0 and 10.0, which decreased steeply at lower pH. The hemagglutination activity of TDSL was unaffected in the temperature range 4–50°C, but decreased rapidly at higher temperatures. Differential scanning calorimetric studies indicate that thermal unfolding of TDSL is an irreversible process, which could be described by a three-state model… CONTINUE READING
