|Hippopus hippopus : Giant clam|
Molecular structure of
|Lecster ID:281|| Edit Entry |
|Source Organism:||Giant clam|
| Common Nomenclature:||Tridacnin|
|Characterization Notes:||This is a C-Type lectin found in the haemolymph of all tridacnids. First discovered by Uhlenbruck and coworkers in the haemolymph of a range of giant clams, it has a molecular mass in excess of 400,000 with subunits of 25 kDa. It is a glycoprotein with N-glycan side chains. N-deglycosylation leaves a subunit with a molecular mass of 20 kDa. The N-glycan chains are of the high mannose type (1) and indications are that there is microheterogeneity.|
