Cancer antennarius : Crab

Molecular structure of

Cancer antennarius

Lecster ID:113 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Crab
Species:Cancer antennarius
Common Nomenclature:
Index Nomenclature:LECi.Can.Ant.xx.Xsi1
Characterization Notes:
Biological Activity:The specificity of the lectin for O-acetylsialic acids appears to account for the fact that it agglutinates mouse, rat, rabbit, and horse erythrocytes, which contain O-acetylsialic acids on cell surface glycoconjugates, but not human monkey, sheep, goat, and chicken erythrocytes which contain only NeuAc or N-glycolylneuraminic acid (NeuGc).
Source Tissue:
Specificity:Sialic acid-binding lectin with high specificity for 9-O-acetyl- and 4-O-acetylsialic acids
References:J Biol Chem 1985 Jul 25;260(15):8850-6
