Deformation and curling of axillary hairs upon inoculation occurs in Arachis and Stylosanthes [29, 30], but root hair curling is not a prerequisite of infection and nodulation. Bradyrhizobium cells were even seen to be entrapped within ‘shepherd’s crooks’ (which are always observed with the infection thread mode), but penetration of the root hair by bradyrhizobia in the crook and An overview on the diversity of 39 lectins from the phylum Porifera is presented, including 38 lectins, which were identified from the class of demosponges, and one lectin from the class of hexactinellida. Their purification from crude extracts was mainly performed by using affinity chromatography and gel filtration techniques. Other protocols were also developed in order to collect and study

1. Introduction. Ricin (RCA 60) is a heterodimeric protein of ≈ 60–65 kDa molecular mass isolated from seeds of the castor plant, Ricinus communis (family Euphorbiaceae). It consists of two polypeptides A (32 kDa) and B (34 kDa), linked via a single disulfide bond.The heavy B-chain possesses the carbohydrate-binding sites (specific for galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine),   In the same way, it has been proposed, that a high consumption of galactose-containing carbohydrates, such as galactose-containing vegetable fiber, would offer protection against binding and proliferative effects of galactose-N-acetylgalactosamine-binding dietary lectins (such as PNA) on colonic neoplastic epithelium [, ].Abstract.

In the current study, 55 Penicillium species were screened for lectin activity using erythrocytes of human ABO, pig, sheep, goat and rabbit. Only four Penicillium species, namely P. duclauxii, P. griseoroseum, P. proteolyticum and P. caseifulfum exhibited lectin activity, while crude undiluted mycelial extract of six species (P.
