Description The protein PLU from P. luminescens has a strong sequence homology with characterized lectin BC2L-C-nt from the human opportunistic pathogen Burkholderia cenocepacia. So far, PLU is the only one supposed homologous of BC2L-C-nt lectin. Function studies were performed using surface plasmon resonance and isothermal titration calorimetry, which allowed identifying binding properties and thermodynamic parameters of interaction with saccharides. Preliminary information about a quaternary structure of the protein was obtained using dynamic light scattering, crosslinking with bifunctional reagents and analytical ultracentrifugation.
