Abstract: Pisum sativum lectin (Psl) is a metalloprotein which is in the center of research interest because of its HIV-1 reverse transcriptase inhibitory activity and mitogenic activity. The application of this lectin in various fields demands the economically feasible and scalable purification strategy other than affinity chromatography. The suitability of aqueous two phase system (ATPS) composed of poly ethylene glycol (PEG) with different salts (sodium citrate, potassium citrate, and ammonium citrate) was evaluated for better partitioning of Psl. The significant factors such as molar mass and concentration of PEG, type and concentration of salts, the effect of tie line length (TLL), ionic strength, and pH were studied to select a suitable system for better partitioning of Psl. ATPS comprising of 18% PEG 6000, 16% sodium citrate, 1% NaCl at the operating condition of pH 8, 40.23% of TLL, and the volume ratio of 1.32 was found to be the best system which gave a maximum partition coefficient and yield of 14.5% and 98.66%, respectively. 2018, 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
