Secale cereale



Lecster ID:598 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Rye
Species:Secale cereale
Common Nomenclature:SCA
Class:Chitin-binding lectins
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Sec.Cer.se.Hch1
Characterization Notes:The rye lectin is very closely related to wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). See: Biochem J 1982 Apr 1;203(1):239-43 Similar lectins have been found in S. kupriianivii, S. montanum, S. silvestre and S. vavilovii. See: Planta 1983 (159);105-111
Biological Activity:The erythroagglutinating activity is the same against human red blood cells of all types of the ABO system and is inhibited by N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. The lectin has no mitogenic activity against mouse splenic lymphocytes. See; Acta Biol Med Ger 1982;41(9):771-80 It also agglutinates rabbit erythrocytes. See: Biochem J 1982 Apr 1;203(1):239-43
Source Tissue:Embryo
Specificity:GlcNAc (oligomers>monomer)
Inhibitors:
References:Biochem J 1982 Apr 1;203(1):239-43
