|Product Overview:||This product is the Hippeastrum Hybrid (Amaryllis) Lectin and Amaryllis lectin binds only α-mannose residues, unlike Con A, LCA and PSA that also bind α-glucosyl structures.|
|Description:||NPL, isolated from daffodil bulbs, has a specificity toward α-linked mannose, preferring polymannose structures containing (α-1,6) linkages. Binding to mannose polymers can occur via internal mannose residues and is not dependent on structural integrity of a non-reducing end sugar. NPL also binds some galactomannans, and differs in other binding characteristics from a related lectin, Galanthus nivalis lectin. Unlike Con A, LCA, or PSA, NPL does not bind glucose.|
|Bio-activity:||Inhibiting Sugar: 400 mM α-methylmannoside|
|Molecular Mass:||59 kDa|
|Storage:||Refrigerate in the dark.|
|Reconstitution:||Although many buffers can be employed for reconstituting and diluting this lectin, 10 mM HEPES buffered saline, pH 8.5, 0.1 mM Ca2+ is recommended. For preserving solutions stored at 4 centigrade, 0.08% sodium azide can be used.|
|Synonyms:||Lectin; NPL, NPA|
