Pure Cicer arietinum lectin (CPA) from chick pea, FITC 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: Poor reactivity with normal human erythrocytes, requiring 7.5% BSA. Less than 1ug/ml will agglutinate papain treated cells.
Carbohydrate Specificity: Not yet determined.
Chemical Used for Conjugation: FITC. Inhibitory Carbohydrate: Not inhibited by simple sugars. Human IgM and bovine fetuin are potent inhibitors.
