|Phaseolus lunatus : Sieva (small pole) lima beans|
Molecular structure of
Sieva (small pole) lima beans:
|Lecster ID:510|| Edit Entry |
|Source Organism:||Sieva (small pole) lima beans|
| Common Nomenclature:|
|Characterization Notes:||Ustilago maydis is an edible parasitic basidiomycete, which specifically infects corn (Zea mays) and teocintle (Z. diploperennis). Lectins specific for N-acetyl-D-galactosamine, such as those from Dolichos biflorus and Phaseolus lunatus, and the wheatgerm agglutinin specific for N-acetyl-D-glucosamine inhibited spore germination, but were ineffective in modifying U. maydis cell growth. See: Cell Mol Life Sci 2000 Dec;57(13-14):1986-9|
|Biological Activity:||At suitable dilutions can discriminate between blood groups A1 and A2. See: Annal NY Acad. Sci. 1970 (169) 168-90 The inclusion of raw limabeans, base-soluble protein, acid-soluble protein, defatted lima bean and ether extracted meal in the diets for growing chickens was shown to produce serious histopathological changes within the livers, kidneys, pancreases, spleen and lungs. See: Br Poult Sci 1993 Jul;34(3):505-22 LBL haemagglutinin-containing diets appeared generally associated with lower levels of intestinal amylase activity. See: Nahrung 1989;33(5):457-61 For neurotoxicity effects of lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) agglutinin in growing albino rats. See: Z Gesamte Hyg. 1986 May;32(5):337-8|
|Specificity:||alpha-D-GalNAc greater than alpha-D-Gal|
