|Product Overview:||This product is arachis hypogaea lectin which against Gal beta 1-3 GalNac (FITC). Affinity purified PNA is conjugated with Fluorescein-5- isothiocyanate (FITC-isomer 1) and purified on Gel filtration column|
|Description:||Peanut lectin (PNA) is an identical tetrameric carbohydrate free protein with MW of 110 kDa. Thomsen-Friedenreich antigen, T-antigen (Galβ1, 3GalNAc) is present on blood group M &N glycoproteins (after removal of sialic acid with neuraminidase), glyconjugates (Mucin type), gangliosides and many glycolipids. T antigen is rarely expressed on normal coloncytes whereas cells of malignant, premalignant cells express this antigen. Peanut lectin has widely been used to detect T antigen in malignant and premalignant cells. Peanut lectin contains one atom of Ca2+ and Mg2+ per unit.
Inhibiting/Eluting sugars: 200 mM Galactose
Carbohydrate-Binding Specificity of PNA: Galβ1, 3 GalNAc>>>>>GalNAc>Gal
