|Phaseolus vulgaris : Pinto bean|
Molecular structure of
Pinto bean:Pinto III
|Lecster ID:513|| Edit Entry |
|Source Organism:||Pinto bean|
| Common Nomenclature:||Pinto III|
|Characterization Notes:||For characterization of Pinto III, see: Lect. Biol. Biochem. Clin. Biochem. 1982 (2) 743|
|Biological Activity:||agglutinates group A erythrocytes at a titer of 1:256; group B erythrocytes at a titer of 1:256; group B erythrocytes at a titer of 1:256; by crude lectin preparation (16mg/ml). See: Int J Cancer 1970;6:283 Antinutritional factors of anasazi bean were compared to traditional pinto bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L. ). Anasazi beans contained less (p<0.001) soluble and bound condensed tannins compared to pinto beans. No differences (p>0.05) in stachyose and raffinose content were found between the two bean types; verbascose was not detected at all. Significant (p<0.05) differences in lectin content were observed between anasazi and pinto bean. The lectins of anasazi beans were classified as non toxic and those of the pinto beans as toxic types. No differences (p>0.05) in inhibitor activity against human and bovine trypsin and chymotrypsin were found between the two bean types. See: Plant Foods Hum Nutr 1997;51(2):85-98|
