Method Lectin preparations have been isolated and purified from the culture liquid of the xylotrophic basidiomycete Lentinus edodes (Berk.) Singer [Lentinula edodes (Berk.) Pegler]. The culture of L. edodes F-249 synthesizes two extracellular lectins different in composition and physicochemical properties. Extracellular lectin L1 from L. edodes is a glycoprotein of mono-subunit structure with molecular weight of 43 kD. L1 is comprised of 10.5 +/- 1.0% (w/w) carbohydrates represented by glucose (Glc). Extracellular lectin L2 is a proteoglycan of mono-subunit structure with molecular weight of 37 kD.
Comments The shiitake (Lentinula edodes) is an edible mushroom native to East Asia, which is cultivated and consumed in many Asian countries, as well as being dried and exported to many countries around the world. It is a feature of many Asian cuisines including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai.
