Abstract: A novel plant lectin has been isolated from the seeds of Talisia esculenta and partially characterized. The purified lectin showed two protein bands in SDS-PAGE (20,000 and 40,000 kDa) and agglutinated human and animal erythrocytes. Of the various sugars tested, the lectin was best inhibited by mannose. A search of sequence databases showed that the N-terminal sequence had no homology to any known protein. The lectin inhibited the growth of the fungi Fusarium oxysporum, Colletotrichum lindemuthianum and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (C) 2002 Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS.
