Table 1 Differential lectin pathway activating properties of S. cerevisiae, C. albicans, C. parapsilosis, C. neoformans, E. coli and S. aureus via MBL

From: Mannose binding lectin plays a crucial role in innate immunity against yeast by enhanced complement activation and enhanced uptake of polymorphonuclear cells

Microbial strain Concentration at Z = 0.3 (CFU/well)
S. cerevisiae 3.39 × 105
C. albicans 4.0 × 105
C. parapsilosis 4.9 × 106
C. neoformans encapsulated > 1 × 107
C. neoformans acapsular > 1 × 107
E. coli > 1 × 108
S. aureus > 1 × 108
  1. Z value stands for the amount of haemolysis in the haemolytic assay, a measure of the mean number of MBL activating sites per chicken erythrocyte. CFU: Colony-forming units
