Pure Calystega sepiem Lectin (Calsepa) from Hedge Bindweed Rhizomes, Biotin 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: Calsepa will agglutinate untreated and trypsin-treated rabbit and human
type An erythrocytes.
Carbohydrate Specificity: Maltose=Mannose>>Glucose
Chemical Used for Conjugation: Biotinyl N-hydroxysuccinimide ester (BNOHSE). Inhibitory Carbohydrate: Methyl alpha-mannopyranoside (best inhibitor) > methyl alpha-glucoside > alpha-glucosides or alpha-glucoside modified at 2-position.
