Pure Phaseolus vulgaris-E4 lectin (PHA-E) from red kidney bean, Texas Red 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 5ug/ml will agglutinate type O human erythrocytes. Less than 0.5mg/ml will agglutinate neuraminidase treated erythrocytes.
Carbohydrate Specificity: PHA-E recognizes a complex branched chain oligosaccharide structure.
Chemical Used for Conjugation: Texas Red. Inhibitory Carbohydrate: Not inhibited by simple sugars.
