Lectins are a family of proteins capable of deciphering the glycan code. Several authors have published works about crystallization and mass spectrometry analyses of ConA-like lectins. However, mass spectrometry has never been used to characterize lectin crystal content. In this study, Canavalia grandiflora lectin (ConGF), a ConA-like lectin, was crystallized, part of its primary structure sequenced and the pro-inflammatory activity evaluated. In addition, the crystal content was analyzed by mass spectrometry.
