|Product Overview:||This product is the unconjugated Griffonia Simplicifolia Lectin II and has sugar specificity against N-Acetylglucosamine.|
|Description:||This lectin is a dimeric glycoprotein composed of two subunits of nearly identical size with each subunit having disulfide-linked chains and a binding site for α- or β-linked N-acetylglucosamine residues. Unlike other N-acetylglucosamine specific lectins, increasing the number of N-acetylglucosamine residues beyond two does not improve affinity. GSL II has been reported to be unique in its ability to recognize exclusively α- or β-linked N-acetylglucosamine residues on the nonreducing terminal of oligosaccharides.|
|Bio-activity:||Inhibiting/Eluting Sugar: Chitin Hydrolysate or 200 mM N-acetylglucosamine|
|Molecular Mass:||113 kDa|
|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, 0.8% sodium azide can be used.|
|Synonyms:||Lectin; GSL II; BSL II|
