Lectin-inhibiting activities are expressed by numbers representing their hemagglutination titer reduction (Log2 dilution-1) by the five edible seed extracts, as compared to those of locust (L) and guar (G) bean gum galactomannans, Acacia arabic gum (A), and mannan (M) [17]. The data include results of hemagglutination inhibition tests (HAI) and counts of the observed GP bands (Bn) in the lectin-stained western blots (Wb) of these seeds, excluding the very weak (vw) ones.
