The toxic lectin, ricin D, contains mannose, fucose, xylose, and N-acetylglucosamine as sugar components. Sugar chains are linked to Asn-10 of the A-chain, and to Asn-95 and Asn-135 of the B-chain (Funatsu, G. et al. (1978) Agric. Biol. Chem. 42, 501-503; Araki, T. & Funatsu, G. (1985) FEBS Lett. 191, 121-124). Asparagine-linked sugar chains of each glycopeptide from ricin D were liberated by hydrazinolysis followed by N-acetylation. The reducing end residues of the sugar chains were coupled… CONTINUE READING
