Interaction of human erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase with lectins

Roberto Ravazzolo, Cecilia Garrè, Franco Ajmar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Interaction of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) of human erythrocyte membranes with wheat germ lectin, Concanavalin A, Lens Culinaris lectin and phytohaemagglutinin is described. In solutions containing Triton X 100, only Wheat Germ lectin showed significant binding with AChE. Sepharose-immobilized Wheat Germ lectin bound AChE significantly more than Concanavalin A. This interaction was used for partial purification of the enzyme.
