Source Organism:Jerusalem artichoke
Species:Helianthus tuberosus
Common Nomenclature:HTA
Class:Jacalin-related lectins
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Hel.Tub.tu.Hmmm1
Characterization Notes:A reinvestigation of Helianthus tuber lectin revealed that it is closely related to the Calystegia lectin with respect to its molecular structure and sugar specificity.
Biological Activity:HTA agglutinates blood group A erythrocytes over other ABO groups, although all blood groups are agglutinated. See: Life Sciences 1991 (312); 573-578
Source Tissue:Tubers
Specificity:Man/Maltose (alpha linked manno-oligosaccharides)
Inhibitors:HTA is inhibited by N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, glucose, mannose, but not by galactose or N-acetyl galactosamine.
