|Source Organism:||Straw mushroom|
| Common Nomenclature:||VVL|
|Characterization Notes:||The lectin has a moderate inhibitory effect on the growth of tumor cells.|
|Biological Activity:||The immunomodulatory activity of VVL was demonstrated by its potent stimulatory activity toward murine splenic lymphocytes. VVL was also found to markedly enhance the transcriptional expression of interleukin-2 and interferon-gamma by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. See:Biochem Biophys Res Commun 1998 Jun 9;247(1):106-11|
|Inhibitors:||Its hemagglutinating activity was inhibited by thyroglobulin but not by simple carbohydrate s such as monomeric or dimeric sugars.|
