Source Organism:Winged bean
Species:Psophocarpus tetragonolobus
Common Nomenclature:PTL-I (WBA-I), PTL-II (WBA-II), WBTL, L-I, L-II
Class:
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Pso.Tet.se.Hga1 (PTL-I) LECp.Pso.Tet.se.Hga2 (PTL-II) LECp.Pso.Tet.ro.Hga1 (WBTL) LECp.Pso.Tet.so.Hga2 LECp.Pso.Tet.le.Hga1 (L-I) LECp.Pso.Tet.le.Hga2 (L-II)
Characterization Notes:The seeds of winged bean, Psophocarpus tetragonolobus(L.)DC, contain two distinct groups of lectins characterized by different erythrocyte hemagglutinating specificities and isoelectric points.
Biological Activity:The acidic lectins (PTA-I, PTA-II, PTA-II) agglutinated trypsinized human (type A, B, AB, and O) erythrocytes but not trypsinized rabbit erythrocytes.

Specificity:
Inhibitors:They were inhibited by various D-galactose derivatives and D-galactose-containing disaccharides and trisaccharides. N-Acetylgalactosamine was the best inhibitor, and the specificity appears to be directed to beta-D-galactosides. However, compared with w
