Biotinylated Lotus Tetragonolobus Lectin (LTL)

Cat. No: B-1325
Price: $147.00
Unit Size: 2 mg

Overview

Lotus tetragonolobus lectin is a family of closely related glycoproteins that appear to have similar specificities toward α-linked L-fucose containing oligosaccharides. Although many of the binding properties of Lotus lectin are similar to those of Ulex europaeus lectin I, the binding affinities and some specificities for oligosaccharides are significantly different between these fucose-specific lectins.

Biotinylated Lotus tetragonolobus 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 sodium azide.

Cat. No. B-1325-2
Unit Size 2 mg
Country of Manufacture United States
Applications Immunohistochemistry / Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence, Blotting Applications, Elispot, ELISAs, Glycobiology
Conjugate Biotinylated
Sugar Specificity Fucose, Arabinose

Biotinylated Lotus tetragonolobus 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 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: 50 mM - 100 mM L-fucose
