| Common Nomenclature:|
|Characterization Notes:||The lectin is a potent agglutinin for human (minimal concentration of protein able to cause visible agglutination of a 2% erythrocyte suspension varying from 1 to 4 micrograms/ml), rabbit (4 micrograms/ml) and chicken erythrocytes (8 micrograms/ml) but presented low activity against cow (250 micrograms/ml) or sheep (333 micrograms/ml) blood cells. (For actions of lectin in Erythrina costaricensis, see:Rev Biol Trop 1991 Jun;39(1):15-21)|
|Biological Activity:||Hemagglutination of human O+ erythrocytes was inhibited by D-lactose (0.2 mM) > D-galactose (0. 8 mM) > D-raffinose (2.1 mM).|
