Binding effects of concanavalin A on a coronavirus



Binding effects of concanavalin A on a coronavirus



Canadian Journal of Comparative Medicine 41(1): 122-126



Concanavalin A, a phytoagglutinin, binds to the envelope of hemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus, a coronavirus. Concanavalin A treated virus suspensions lose their hemagglutination properties, and there is a transient interference with infectivity. Electron micrographs show the concanavalin A as a granular deposit adhering to the viral envelope, and there is aggregation of the virus. Concanavalin A does not bind to virions stripped of their envelopes.
