Tulipa gesneriana : Tulip

Molecular structure of

Tulipa gesneriana

Lecster ID:629 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Tulip
Species:Tulipa gesneriana
Common Nomenclature:TGA
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Tul.Ges.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:TGA specifically agglutinates the yeast cells of the Saccharomyces genus
Biological Activity:
Source Tissue:bulb
Specificity:Inhibition experiments, using various manno-oligosaccharides, suggested that the lectin recognized (1----6)-linked manno-oligosaccharide units larger than mannobiose.
Inhibitors:D-Mannose, D-mannose 6-phosphate, L-fucose and L-fucosylamine were potent inhibitors of the lectin binding to S. cerevisiae cells, while, D-glucose, D-galactose and D-mannosamine were inactive.
References:Eur J Biochem 1986 Sep 1;159(2):239-45
