The physical-chemical and carbohydrate binding specificity of
Association constants for the binding of methyl α- and β-D-galactopyranoside and methyl 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-α-D-galactopyranoside to the A4, A2 B2 and B4 isolectins are reported.
Precipitation reactions of the
The hypothesis that subunit B is a precursor of subunit A, a process involving proteolytic cleavage of the B subunit, was tested by conducting structural studies on the 2 subunits. The results indicated that the A and B subunits are probably products of 2 separate but closely related, possibly contiguous genes.
