The carbohydrate-binding sequences (CBS) of the lectin genes from legume plants of the genera Astragalus Lam., Oxytropis DC., and Hedysarum L. were determined. Computer-assisted analysis of nucleotide and predicted amino acid sequences of the lectin gene fragments examined revealed a high homology level between their CBS. At the same time, the CBS of Astragalus and Oxytropis were considerably different from the lectin gene CBS in the earlier examined representatives of the tribe Galegeae, Caragana frutex and C. arborescens. This fact probably points to the differences in the carbohydrate-binding specificity of the proteins examined, which can eventually affect their functional activity.
