Concanavalin A bound to Sepharose has been used for the purification of brain β-galactosidase, α-L-fucosidase, α-D-mannosidase, arylsulphatase and β-glucuronidase.0 Several factorsviz pH, temperature and concentration of α-methyl glucoside influenced the binding and elution of these enzymes. A lysosomal acid α-mannosidase and a cytosolic neutral mannosidase were separable by concanavalin A-Sepharose chromatography. Similarly lysosomal and microsomal β-glucuronidases were separable using gradient elution with α-methyl glucoside. The results indicate the usefulness of this lectin for the isolation of wide variety of enzymes under specified experimental conditions.
