Abstract

A lectin was isolated from the shoots of bamboo Phyllostachys pubescens by using affinity chro matography on Sephadex G-75. In hemagglutination inhibition assays, this lectin exhibited a binding specificity toward maltose and methyl α-mannoside. The N-terminal sequence was determined as Lys-Ser-Cys-Cys-Pro-Ser-Thr-Thr-Ala and identical with that of the American mistletoe toxin, ligatoxin A.
