Lectins are derived from the extracts of plants, animals, viruses and microorganisms. They 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: SNA-II agglutinates animal and human erythrocytes. Lectin has a slight preference for type B over An and O erythrocytes.
Carbohydrate Specificity: GalNAc>Gal. Inhibitory Carbohydrate: High concentrtion Lactose>b-Galactose.
