Mannan-binding lectins in the coelomic fluid of various species of Far Eastern echinoderms

Mannan-binding lectins in the coelomic fluid of various species of Far Eastern echinoderms A mannan-binding lectin activity was revealed in the coelomic fluid of the following echinoderm species inhabiting the coastal areas of the Sea of Japan, the holothurian Eupentacta fraudatrio, sea urchins Echinocardium cordatum, Strongylocentrotus nudus and S. intermedius, brittle star Amphipholis kochii, sea stars Asterina pectinifera, Lethasterias fusca, Lysastrosoma anthosticta, and Distolasterias nipon. It was shown that, concurrently with the general pattern of lectin interaction with branched bacterial mannans, there were also distinctions caused by the fine carbohydrate specificity of lectins. The obtained data preconditioned the further study of physical and chemical properties and structural features of the echinoderm MBL and the revelation of their role in the formation of the adaptive immune response and in other biological processes.
