|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:||This lectin is composed of four subunits of identical size and is immunologically related to GNL and NPL. Amaryllis lectin binds only α-mannose residues, unlike Con A, LCA and PSA that also bind α-glucosyl structures. Like NPL there appears to be an extended binding site for polymannose structures, not requiring mannose to be at the non-reducing terminus. HHL binds both (α-1,3) and (α-1,6) linked mannose structures, as well as some yeast galactomannans.|
|Bio-activity:||Inhibiting Sugar: 100 mM α-methylmannoside|
|Molecular Mass:||50 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; HHL, AL|
