Structural and functional changes associated with cyanogen bromide treatment of wheat germ agglutinin.

Abstract

The lectin, wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), has been shown to have a significant larvicidal effect on the European corn borer, a major insect pest of corn. In order to characterize this toxic effect, we have undertaken structure-function studies on WGA. To this extent, the effect of cyanogen bromide (CNBr) on the conformation, subunit interactions, and… (More)
