The lectin-inhibiting activities are expressed in numbers representing the hemagglutination titer reduction (Log2 dilution-1) of the three patholectins by non-dialyzed (N) and dialyzed (D) preparations of pumpkin seed and tomato seed extracts, as compared to animal embryo-protecting and neonate-protecting substances (human milk (HM), cow milk (CM), quail egg white (QEW), royal jelly (RJ), and honey [16]). The data include the results of hemagglutination inhibition tests (HAI) and counts of the observed GP bands (Bn) in these lectin-stained western blots (Wb), excluding the very weak (vw) ones.
