|Product Overview:||This product is the Griffonia (Bandeiraea) Simplicifolia Lectin I and has sugar specificity against Galactose, N-Acetylgalactosamine. The excitation maximum is at 550 nm and the emission maximum is at 575 nm.|
|Description:||GSL I is a family of glycoproteins with molecular weights of approximately 114 kDa. There are two types of subunits, termed A and B , with slightly different molecular weights. These subunits combine to form tetrameric structures, resulting in five isolectins. The A -rich lectin preferentially agglutinates blood group A erythrocytes and thus appears to be specific for α-N-acetylgalactosamine residues, while the B -rich lectin preferentially agglutinates blood group B cells and is specific for α-galactose residues. This GSL I is a mixture of the five isolectins. GSL I has been reported to bind several glycoproteins including laminin.|
