Pure Homarus americanus lectin (HMA) from Lobster, 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: Less than 2.5ug/ml will agglutinate human type B erythrocytes. At least 10ug/ml is required to agglutinate type O or A2 erythrocytes.
Carbohydrate Specificity: Sialic acid (generic term for derivatives of N-Acetylneuraminic acid and N-Glycolyneuraminic acid)
Chemical Used for Conjugation: FITC. Inhibitory Carbohydrate: N-Acetylneuraminic acid, N-Acetylgalactosamine.
