Abstract

Two new lectins were isolated from mycelium of and by affinity chromatography on mucin-Sepharose. The lectin (RCL) was a tetramer of 11 kDa subunits whereas the lectin (ARL) was a dimer of two 17 kDa subunits. Both lectins were rich in asparagine/aspartic acid, glutamine/glutamic acid, glycine, lysine and serine. In contrast to the previously described agglutinin (RSA), which exhibits specificity towards -acetylgalactosamine, RCL and ARL had a complex specificity. Despite obvious differences between the three lectins, they are serologically related to each other.
