Description Photorhabdus luminescens is a gram-negative symbiotic bacterium that lives in the gut of entomopathogenic nematodes. The protein PLU from P. luminescens has a strong sequence homology with the recently characterized lectin BC2L-C-nt from the human opportunistic pathogen Burkholderia cenocepacia. BC2L-C-nt is an attractive protein, since it has unique beta sandwich trimeric structure and is the first lectin with TNF-fold. The contribution is focused on characterization of lectin PLU from P. luminescens.
