Crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction studies of the lectin from Erythrina corallodendron

J Mol Biol. 1987 Feb 20;193(4):823-4. doi: 10.1016/0022-2836(87)90363-9.


The lectin from Erythrina corallodendron, specific for N-acetyllactosamine, crystallizes in the hexagonal space group P6(1) (P6(5)) with unit cell dimensions a = b = 136.3 A, c = 83.2 A and one dimer of Mr 60,000 in the asymmetric unit. The crystals are suitable for high-resolution work.
