Brachypodium sylvaticum : False broome grass

Molecular structure of
False broome grass:BsyL

Brachypodium sylvaticum

Lecster ID:95 Edit Entry
Source Organism:False broome grass
Species:Brachypodium sylvaticum
Common Nomenclature:BsyL
Class:Chitin-binding lectins
Index Nomenclature:LECp.Bra.Syl.se.Hch1
Characterization Notes:Although this lectin resembles cereal lectins with respect to its biochemical and physicochemical properties, it differs structurally in several aspects from wheat-germ-agglutinin-like lectins. See: Biochem J 1982 Sep 1;205(3):635-8
Biological Activity:The lectin agglutinates all human erythrocytes equally well regardless of blood group. See: Biochem. J. 1982 (205); 635-638
Source Tissue:
Specificity:GlcNAc (oligomers> monomer)
Inhibitors:Oligomers of GlcNAc are more effective inhibitors of agglutination than the monomer.
