Abstract

Centipedes are venomous arthropods that have been used in conventional medicine for hundreds of years in China. However, very little is known about the active components of centipedes signifying pharmacological importance. In this study, a natural agglutinin from the hemolymph of the centipede Rhysida longipes longipes was purified by bioadsorption method and was characterized. The purified lectin showed strong affinity for rabbit erythrocytes and was specific for N-Acetyl glucosamine (GluNAc). The crude hemagglutinin and the purified lectin were sensitive to pH and temperature. The addition of calcium up to 100 mM and EDTA up to 10 mM had no effect on HA activity. The purified lectin was found to be a multiple lectin of 226 kDa, 83 kDa and 59 kDa on PAGE.

Key Words
