The bark, leaves and seed arils of the spindle tree contain antimicrobial proteins, including different lectins. This antimicrobial proteins play an important role in the plant's defense against several pests and pathogens. Classical protein purification methods like chromatography are used to isolate and purify the proteins. Once the proteins isolated, they are characterized with molecular techniques.
