Abstract: ⍺-D-Mannosidase (EC:, a glycoprotein with 8.6% carbohydrate was purified (26 fold purification) to homogeneity from Erythrina indica seeds, by gel filtration on Bio-Gel P-100 and affinity chromatography on Con-A CL Seralose. The enzyme had the molecular mass of 124 kDa and 127 kDa by gel filtration and SDS-PAGE, respectively. The optimum pH and temperature for enzyme activity were found to be 4.6 and 50ºC, respectively. The Km value for the enzyme was 2.1 mM for p-nitrophenyl-α-D-mannopyranoside. The enzyme activity was found to depend on the presence of Zn²⁺. Chemical modification studies revealed the involvement of tryptophan, serine and cysteine for enzyme activity.
