Abstract [en]

A study of black pine seed protein bodies with regard to the presence of defense-related proteins was performed. Interaction of the intact protein bodies with saccharides revealed specificity of surface membrane binding sites for chitin, cellulose, laminarin and the respective mono- or disaccharides. Crude protein fraction isolated from protein bodies possessed an ability to agglutinate fungal spores. Inhibiton of the fungal spores agglutination confirmed the presence of lectin-like proteins specific to basic fungal cell wall components.
