The lectin activity in an extract from the mantle of the mussel Mytilus trossulus was tested for the first time. Using the method of the hemagglutination inhibition assay, it was shown that lectins were Gal/GalNAc-specific and best agglutinated with rabbit erythrocytes. The influence of foreign compounds on the lectin level in the M. trossulus mantle was examined. Upon cadmium acetate exposure, the level of lectin activity exhibited phasic alterations and depended on the contaminant concentration or the time of exposure. During exposure of mussels to a synthetic detergent or diesel fuel, changes in lectin contents were dependent on the time of exposure.
