Pure Bauhinia purpurea lectin (BPA) from Camel\'s foot tree, HRP conjugated.
Lectins are derived from the extracts of plants, animals, viruses and microorganisms and are known to agglutinate red blood cells. These agglutinins can select cell types according to blood group activities utilizing sugar-binding mechanisms.
Lectins form precipitates with glycoconjugates and are useful for identifying or separating oligosaccharides with identical sugar compositions such as galactose, mannose or glucose.
Activity: Less than 0.5ug/ml will agglutinate human erythrocytes after neuraminidase treatment of the cells. Without prior enzyme treatment, at least 25ug/ml is required to agglutinate red blood cells.
Carbohydrate Specificity: N-Acetylgalactosamine.
Chemical Used for Conjugation: HRP. Inhibitory Carbohydrate: N-Acetylgalactosamine.
