Achatina fulica

Lecster ID:10 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Achantina snail
Species:Achatina fulica
Common Nomenclature:Achatina fulica Cold Aggltutinin; achatinin-H
Index Nomenclature:LECi.Ach.ful.xx.Xsi1

Biological Activity:
Source Tissue:
Specificity:Achatinin-H shows a high affinity for 9-O-acetylneuraminic acid. For binding of galactose, see: Lect. Biol. Biochem. Clin. Biochem.1988 (6) 411 For affinity of cold agglutinin towards N-acetyllactosamine, see: Lect. Biol. Biochem. Clin. Biochem.1986 (5) 251
Inhibitors:The inhibition of agglutination of human umbilical-cord erythrocytes by the cold agglutinin is specific for methyl beta-D-galactoside and also for glycolipids present on cord erythrocytes.
