THE EFFECT OF PEANUT LECTIN ON INTESTINAL PROLIFERATION, ACF AND TUMOUR DEVELOPMENT IN COLONIC CARCINOGENESIS
- Lectins. Vohr, Hans-Werner // Encyclopedic Reference of Immunotoxicology;2005, p374
A definition of the term "lectins" is presented. It refers to a family of carbohydrate-binding proteins found in animals and plants. The different type of lectins recognize specific carbohydrate ligands.
- Carbohydrate-Binding Properties of the Hemolytic Lectin CEL-III from the Holothuroidea Cucumaria echinata as Analyzed Using Carbohydrate-Coated Microplate. Hatakeyama, Tomomitsu; Miyamoto, Yoko; Nagatomo, Haruna; Sallay, Imure; Yamasaki, Nobuyuki // Journal of Biochemistry;1997, Vol. 121 Issue 1, p63
The carbohydrate-binding properties of the hemolytic lectin CEL-III from the Holothuroidea Cucumaria echinata were studied using the microplate assay system which we have recently developed [Hatakeyama et al (1996) Anal. Biochem. 237, 188-192]. When the binding of CEL-III to lactose covalently...

Three fluorescein-labeled lectins were shown to bind differentially to cell surfaces in different epithelial layers of rat oral mucosa regardless of the age or the site of origin of the tissue, Griffonia simplicifolia (GS-1-B4), specific for Î±-D-galactosyl end groups, labeled basal...

- A simple and accessible synthetic lectin for glucose recognition and sensing. Ke, Chenfeng; Destecroix, Harry; Crump, Matthew P.; Davis, Anthony P. // Nature Chemistry;Aug2012, Vol. 4 Issue 9, p718
Binding carbohydrates from water is a difficult task, even for the natural carbohydrate-binding proteins known as lectins. The design of synthetic lectin mimics is correspondingly challenging, especially if good selectivities are required. In previous work we showed that success is possible, but...
- Computer Aided Analysis of Lectin Proteins from Various Fungal Groups. Senthil, Subramanian Thiru Nirai; Rajagopal, Kalayanaraman; Jothi, Annamalai; Kamalakannan, Thirunavukarasu // Journal of Communication & Computer;Feb2012, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p134
Lectins are non-enzyme, non-immunoglobulin carbohydrate binding proteins. They play a critical role in biological recognition involving cell and proteins. In the present study lectin proteins from different fungal groups were analysed for their structural, functional and phylogenetic relations....

Lectins, a class of carbohydrate-binding proteins and widely recognized to play a range of crucial roles in many cell-cell recognition events triggering several important cellular processes encompass different members that are diverse in their protein structures, carbohydrate affinities and...

- Identification of differentially expressed genes by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in human bronchial epithelial cells. Jin, K-S; Park, CM; Lee, Y-W // Human & Experimental Toxicology;Jan2012, Vol. 31 Issue 1, p107
Dioxin (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin; TCDD) is one of the most powerful environmental toxins and causes a variety of toxic effects in humans. Since it makes first contact with bronchial epithelial cells as an atmospheric contaminant, we identified differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in...
