Polyandrocarpa misakiensis : Tunicate




Molecular structure of
Tunicate:

Polyandrocarpa misakiensis



Lecster ID:538 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Tunicate
Species:Polyandrocarpa misakiensis
Common Nomenclature:
Class:C-lectin
Index Nomenclature:LECi.Pol.Mis.xx.Xga1
Characterization Notes:The amino acid sequence of Polyandrocarpa lectin shows about 20-30% homology with those of fly, barnacle, sea urchin, and several vertebrate lectins that belong to C-type lectin (Drickamer, K. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 9557-9560). Although the physiological role of Polyandrocarpa lectin is not clear, preliminary experiments suggest that the lectin may be related to defense mechanisms because it has a strong antibacterial activity.
