Oncorhynchus mykiss : Steelhead trout
Ladderlectin



Molecular structure of
Steelhead trout:Ladderlectin

Oncorhynchus mykiss



Lecster ID:469 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Steelhead trout
Species:Oncorhynchus mykiss
Common Nomenclature:Ladderlectin
Class:
Index Nomenclature:LECa.Onc.Myk.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:The lectin appears as a characteristic ladder of bands with approximately 16 kDa between consecutive bands. Upon reduction, the lectin appears as a 16-kDa band. Sequence alignment and phylogenetic analysis of the carbohydrate -recognition domain indicate that the protein has similarity with human dendritic cell immunoreceptor (DCIR), gp120 binding C-type lectin (gp120BCL) and mammalian hepatic lectins.
Biological Activity:
Source Tissue:
Specificity:
Inhibitors:Glucose, N-acetyl-glucosamine, mannose, N-acetyl-mannosamine, L-fucose, maltose and alpha-methyl-mannoside are good inhibitors of this binding, whereas glucosamine and D-fucose inhibits to a lesser degree and mannosamine and galactose do not inhibit
