|Product Overview:||This product is the Agarose bound Tomato lectin from Lycopersicon esculentum and has sugar specificity against [GlcNAc]1-3, N-Acetylglucosamine.|
|Description:||Tomato lectin is a very stable single subunit glycoprotein containing about 50 percent arabinose and galactose and may form multimeric aggregates in solution. Tomato lectin, although sharing some specificities with potato lectin, Datura lectin, and wheat germ agglutinin, has been reported to be dissimilar in many respects. LEL binds well to glycophorin and Tamm-Horsfall glycoprotein and has been used effectively to label vascular endothelium in rodents.|
