Bacillus polymyxa : Bacteria

Molecular structure of

Bacillus polymyxa

Lecster ID:75 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Bacteria
Species:Bacillus polymyxa
Common Nomenclature:
Index Nomenclature:LECb.Bac.Pols.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:
Biological Activity:Lectins LI and LII, localized on the surface of the nitrogen-fixing soil bacterium Bacillus polymyxa 1460, were shown to possess proteolytic activity. A relationship was found between the proteolytic and hemagglutinating activities of the lectins.
Source Tissue:
Inhibitors:Blocking of hemagglutinating activity with specific carbohydrate haptens led to significant changes in the enzyme activity of both lectins. When lectin activity was blocked with glucuronic acid and fructose-1, 6-diphosphate, the proteolytic activity of b
