Purification and Characterization of Hemagglutinating Protein from Rhizome of Alisma orientale

택사(Alismatis Rhizoma) Hemagglutinating Protein의 정제와 특성

  • Published : 1995.08.01


Lectin was purified by using $(NH_4)_2SO_4$, DEAE-cellulose ion-exchange chromatography and Sephadex G-150 column chromatography from Alismatis Rhizoma(AR). The specific activity of AR lectin was 50, 441units/mg, and purification folds were 114. The AR lectin agglutinated human erythrocytes of all types(A, B, O, AB). The molecular weight of AR lectin was estimated about 90, 500 daltons by gel filtration and each subunits were 42,000, 27,000 and 22,500 daltons on SDS-PAGE respectively. The hemagglutinating activity of the lectin was inhibited by sialic acid, glucose, ribose, galactose, sucrose, and lactose. It was also inhibited by cations such as $Hg^{++},\;Fe^{++},\;Cu^{++}\;and\;Pb^{++}$.
