|Hura crepitans : Sand-box tree|
Molecular structure of
|Lecster ID:372|| Edit Entry |
|Source Organism:||Sand-box tree|
| Common Nomenclature:||HCA|
|Class:||Type 2 RIP|
|Index Nomenclature:||LECp.Hur.Cre.se.Cga1 (HCA) LECp.Hur.Cre.la.Cga1|
|Biological Activity:||The seed lectin agglutinates horse, rabbit, rat, pig, sheep and calf red blood cells as well as all human erythrocytes. In all cases, with the exception of pig erythrocytes, agglutination was enhanced by treatment of the cells with neuraminidase. See: Biochimica et Biophysic Acta 1980 (632);95-105 The latex lectin agglutinates all human erythrocytes. Both the seed and latex lectins have mitogenic activity for human T lymphocytes but not for B lymphocytes. Both Hura crepitans lectins inhibit protein synthesis in a reticulocyte lysate. Biochem J. 1983 (215); 433-439|
|Source Tissue:||Seeds and latex|
|Inhibitors:||N-acetyl-galactosamine and to a lesser degress D-galactose|
