Human Penultimate Galactose Lectin

Molecular structure of
Plasma:Human Penultimate Galactose Lectin

Homo sapiens

Lecster ID:299 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Plasma
Species:Homo sapiens
Common Nomenclature:Human Penultimate Galactose Lectin
Index Nomenclature:LECh.Hom.Sap.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:Results indicate that the lectin recognizes the penultimate galactose residue in a hapten molecule in contrast to usual galactose-binding proteins or galactose-specific lectins, which recognize exposed, terminal galactose residues of sugar chains
Biological Activity:
Source Tissue:
Inhibitors:The lectin is strongly inhibited by the desialylated bovine erythrocyte glycoprotein, which contains galactose beta 1-3galactose beta-sequence at the nonreducing termini of the sugar chains, whereas disialylated orosomucoid did not inhibit the lectin.
References:J Biol Chem 1986 Apr 25;261(12):5455-9
