Extraction, Purification and Anti-Cancerous Activity of Lectin Protein from Moringa oleifera

Nirvaan Singla

Abstract: Lectins belong to the class of proteins which specifically bind to certain carbohydrate moieties. The impact of lectins on human health and their potential benefits had been studied so far by several researchers till date. Here, in this work a thorough and simple method of extraction and purification of lectin protein from Moringa Oleifera has been developed. Also, the anti - cancerous activity of the protein has been checked due to its ability to target selectively cancer cells. This species is already popular in South - Asian countries for its high modulation to the immune system. This work suggests that the species proves to be one of the best gifts of nature.

Keywords: Lectin protein, carbohydrate moieties, anti - cancerous and anti - bacterial, extraction and purification, Moringa Oleifera, blood lipid profiles, insulin secretion, polyphenols, bioactive properties, selective predation
