Biological Activity:Aaptos lectin I reacted best with blood group substances with terminal nonreducing N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues precipitating about two-thirds of the lectin N added while blood group substances with terminal nonreducing DGalNAc were almost inactive. However, Aaptos lectin II was completely precipitated by blood group substances and glycoproteins containing terminal DGalNAc, DGlcNAc, or sialic acid residues.
