|Title:||Do outer membrane proteins of biofouling bacteria <i>Vibrio alginolyticus </i>have lectins?|
|Abstract:||The outer membrane proteins (OMPs) of <i>Vibrio alginolyticus</i>, isolated from tin panels lowered into the seawater when subjected to SDS-PAGE analysis revealed proteins of molecular weight ranging from 14 – 116 kDa. However, when stained with PAS only 9 glycoprotein bands were observed. Sugar binding studies and hemagglutination assay performed with RBCs from various animals confirmed the absence of lectins. Apparantely adhesion of <i>V. alginolyticus</i> to tin panels involves other interactions such as Van der Wall’s interaction and electrostatic forces.|
