Molecular structure of
Shellfish:

Saxidomus purpuratus



Lecster ID:590 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Shellfish
Species:Saxidomus purpuratus
Common Nomenclature:
Class:
Index Nomenclature:LECi.Sax.Pur.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:The two lectins (SPA-I and -III) differed slightly in amino acid composition and were glycoproteins containing 2.1 and 3.8 mol of GlcNAc per 40,000 g of the lectin, respectively.
Biological Activity:
Source Tissue:
Specificity:
Inhibitors:The binding constant of SPA-I or SPA-III for methyl N-acetyl-a-D-glucosamide, the strongest inhibitor of hemagglutination in this experiment, was estimated to be 1.3 X 10(3) or 4. 2 X 10(4) M-1, respectively, by the UV difference spectroscopy method.
