An insulin-binding protein was isolated from Canavalia ensiformis seed coat, by using an insulin-Sepharose 4B affinity chromatography, and the protein was identified as canavalin (Canavalia 7S globulin) by mass spectrometry analysis. The major novelty of these data is the acidic nature of this globulin insulin-binding, in contrast to the basic Bg-like insulin- binding proteins so far reported in plants.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
