Source Organism:
Species:Orchidaceae
Common Nomenclature:
Class:
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Orc.Sss.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:Mannose-binding lectins were purified from the leaves of three Orchidaceae species, namely Listera ovata (twayblade), Epipactis helleborine (broad-leaved helleborine) and Cymbidium hybrid, using affinity chromatography on mannose - Sepharose-4B. Apparently, the Orchidaceae lectins are dimeric proteins composed of lectin subunits of 12-13 kDa. All of the isolated lectins exhibit exclusive specificity towards mannose.
