Branchiostoma lanceolatum : Cephalochordate

Molecular structure of

Branchiostoma lanceolatum

Lecster ID:97 Edit Entry
Source Organism:Cephalochordate
Species:Branchiostoma lanceolatum
Common Nomenclature:
Index Nomenclature:LECi.Bra.Lan.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:Haemagglutination inhibition experiments with 17 saccharides and glycoproteins failed to show clear-cut carbohydrate specificity, with only mucin and fetuin having any inhibitory effect, so that the binding may be complex. See: Dev Comp Immunol 1990 Fall;14(4):405-14
Biological Activity:The lectin agglutinates a variety of erythrocytes including human A, B, O red blood cells as well as human lymphocytes.
Source Tissue:Whole body homogenate
Inhibitors:Hemagglutination activity is inhibited best by N,N',N"-triacetylchitotriose, followed by N,N'-diacetylchitobiose, which is half as inhibitory.
References:Comp Biochem Physiol B 1991;99(3):699-707
