The [alpha]2,3- and [alpha]2,6-linked sialosides in the respiratory organs of a naive cat were detected with biotinylated Maackia
amurensis lectin I or II (MAA I, MAA II) or Sambucus nigra lectin (SNA I), respectively.
PHA-E, Phaseolus vulgaris agglutinin-erythroagglutinin; SBA, soybean agglutinin; WGA, wheat germ agglutinin; SNA, Sambucus nigra agglutinin; PNA, peanut agglutinin; WFA, Wisteria floribunda agglutinin; PSA, Pisum sativum agglutinin; VVL, Vicia villosa lectin; RCA, Ricinus communis agglutinin; AAL, Aleuria aurantia lectin; TJA, Trichosanthes japonica agglutinin; MAA, Maackia
amurensis agglutinin II; UEA, Ulex europaeus agglutinin; HPA, Helix pomatia agglutinin.
Tectoridin from Maackia
amurensis modulates both estrogen and thyroid receptors.
amurensis, the Amur Maackia
, was introduced to this country from Japan well over 100 years ago, yet remains largely unknown to the nursery trade.
Carbohydrate structure and differential binding of prostate specific antigen to Maackia
amurensis lectin between prostate cancer and benign prostate hypertrophy.
development and nitrogen fixation of Maackia
The lectins used were Conconavalin A, Jacalin, soybean agglutinin, Maackia
amurensis agglutinin II, and Sainbucus nigra agglutinin.
6, and incubated with 250 [micro]L of fluorescein isothiocyanate--labeled Sambucus nigra lectin (Vector Laboratories, Burlingame, CA, USA) and biotinylated Maackia
amurensis lectin (Vector Laboratories) overnight at 4[degrees]C.
The Amur Maackia
is a cold hardy small tree blooming with panicles of white flowers in mid- to late July.
Aim: The stem bark of Maackia
amurensis has been used as folk medicine for the treatment of cancer, cholecystitis, arthritis, and hyperthyroidism in females.
amurensis agglutinin lectin can distinguish (P < 0.
The tissues were stained by immunofluorescence by using the lectins Sambucus nigra (SNA, specific for SA[alpha]2,6 galactose(Gal)/N-acetylgalactosaminide) and Maackia
amurensis (MAA, specific for SA[alpha]2,3) as previously described (7).
