Native Ricinus Communis Agglutinin II Protein

Cat.No.: Lectin-1834R
Product Overview: This product is the Unconjugated Ricinus Communis Agglutinin II (RCA II, RCA60, ricin) and has sugar specificity against Galactose, N-Acetylgalactosamine, and Lactose.
Description: Ricinus communis agglutinin II is an extremely toxic glycoprotein consisting of two disulfide-linked chains of about 28 kDa and 32 kDa, termed A and B chain, respectively. The B chain can bind to cell surfaces via galactose or N-acetylgalactosamine residues of membrane glycoconjugates and facilitates the transport of the lectin into the cell. The A chain has an enzyme activity which can catalytically block protein synthesis and is so toxic that only a single molecule of A chain is required to kill a cell. Alone, the A chain is incapable of entering the cell and is thus not toxic.
