Macrobrachium rosenbergii : Freshwater prawn

Molecular structure of
Freshwater prawn:MrL

Macrobrachium rosenbergii

Lecster ID:425 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Freshwater prawn
Species:Macrobrachium rosenbergii
Common Nomenclature:MrL
Index Nomenclature:LECi.Mac.Ros.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:A sialic acid specific lectin (MrL) that agglutinates erythrocytes from rat and rabbit, as well as some Gram negative and positive bacterial strains.
Biological Activity:
Source Tissue:
Specificity:Since agglutination of erythrocytes (RBC) is not abolished by treatment with Vibrio cholerae neuraminidase (VCN), Macrobrachium shows an agglutination pattern different from that of other sialic acid-specific lectins such as Limulus polyphemus lectin.
Inhibitors:Hemagglutination-inhibition tests indicate that sialic acid containing compounds are the best inhibitors for Macrobrachium lectins.
