Biotinylated Dolichos Biflorus Agglutinin (DBA)

Cat. No: B-1035
Price: $196.00
Unit Size: 5 mg

Overview

This lectin has a carbohydrate specificity toward α-linked N-acetylgalactosamine.  It has been used to establish secretor status in blood group A individuals by hemagglutination inhibition techniques and for blood typing. This lectin has also been used as a general marker of developing renal collecting ducts.

Biotinylated Dolichos biflorus agglutinin has an appropriate number of biotins bound to provide the optimum staining characteristics for this lectin. This conjugate is supplied essentially free of unconjugated biotins and is preserved with sodium azide.

More Information

Dolichos biflorus agglutinin is a glycoprotein with a molecular weight of about 111 kDa and consists of 4 subunits of approximately equal size. This lectin has a carbohydrate specificity toward α-linked N-acetylgalactosamine. It has been used to establish secretor status in blood group A individuals by hemagglutination inhibition techniques and for blood typing. This lectin has also been used as a general marker of developing renal collecting ducts.

Biotinylated Dolichos biflorus agglutinin has an appropriate number of biotins bound to provide the optimum staining characteristics for this lectin. This conjugate is supplied essentially free of unconjugated biotins and is preserved with sodium azide.

This biotinylated lectin is an ideal intermediate for examining glycoconjugates using the Biotin-Avidin/Streptavidin System. First the biotinylated lectin is added, followed by the VECTASTAIN ABC Reagent, Avidin D conjugate, or streptavidin derivative.

Inhibiting/Eluting Sugar: 200 mM N-acetylgalactosamine
