Algae of Peter the Great Bay of the Sea of Japan as a source of lectins

Abstract

Algae of Peter the Great Bay (Sea of Japan) were for the first time bioassayed as a source of lectins. From 28 algal species of three orders, only some extracts from brown (Phaeophyta) and red (Rhodophyta) seaweeds were found to cause agglutination of human erythrocytes. The hemagglutinating activity of extracts from three species of brown algae and the red alga Tichocarpus crinitus was caused by lectins; for a majority of extracts from the investigated algae, this activity was due to the presence of substances of non-lectin nature.
