Cytisus scoparius



Lecster ID:189 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Scotch broom
Species:Cytisus scoparius
Common Nomenclature:CSA-I, CSA-II, CMH-I, CMH-II
Class:
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Cyt.Sco.se.Hga1 (CS-I) LECp.Cyt.Sco.se.Hga2 (CS-II)
Characterization Notes:Two anti-H(O) lectins were separated from extracts of Cytisus sessilifolius seeds by successive affinity chromatographies on columns of di-N-acetylchitobiose- and galactose-Sepharose 4B. One was found to be inhibited most by di-N-acetylchitotriose or tri-N-acetylchitotriose [Cytisus-type anti-H(O) lectin designated as Cytisus sessilifolius lectin I (CSA-I)] and the other anti-H(O) lectin was inhibited by galactose or lactose and designated as Cytisus sessilifolius lectin II (CSA-II).
Biological Activity:CSA-I and CSA-II agglutinate blood group H(O) erythrocytes, as does CMH-I. CMH-II is a non-blood group specificy hemagglutinin.

Inhibitors:CMH-I is inhibited by di- N-acetylchitobiose or tri- N-acetylchitotriose. Treatment of human O erythrocytes with a purified H-decomposing enzyme (alpha-L-fucosidase from Bacillus fulminans abolished the agglutinability of the cells with CMH-I. This indi
