Myelin basic protein (MBP) from one month old rat brain was purified by CM-52 cellulose chromatography and heparin sepharose chromatography. It's lectin properties were studied and conditions for optimum agglutination were observed. MBP behaved likea heparin binding lectin. Carbohydrade binding specificity studies showed that on molar basis MBP was feebly inhibited by lactose and strongly inhibited by heparin. Inhibition due to heparin was not due to electrostatic forces as evidenced by no inhibition due to other glycosaminoglycans. Argine and lysine residues were involved in the agglutination activity of MBP.
