SJL-I, SJL-II



Molecular structure of
Sea cucumber:SJL-I, SJL-II

Stichopus japonicus



Lecster ID:612 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Sea cucumber
Species:Stichopus japonicus
Common Nomenclature:SJL-I, SJL-II
Class:
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Sxx.Jap.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:
Biological Activity:SJL-I agglutinated rabbit erythrocytes as well as human A, B, and O-type erythrocytes, but SJL-II agglutinated only rabbit erythrocytes.
Source Tissue:
Specificity:
Inhibitors:Hemagglutination by SJL-I was competitively inhibited by N-acetyl-D-galactosamine and galactose-containing carbohydrate s. On the other hand, only lactose, melibiose, and raffinose gave weak inhibition of hemagglutination by SJL-II
