Vector Labs is closed to observe Independence Day (US Holiday) on Thursday, July 4th.
We will be back in the office on Friday. We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

Griffonia Simplicifolia Lectin I (GSL I) Isolectin B4, DyLight® 594 (DL-1207-.5)

[text-backorder]

Description

GSL I-B4 isolectin contains only the B subunits. It is a useful marker for endothelial cells from nonprimates such as mouse, rat, rabbit, and goat as well as a marker for non-peptidergic unmyelinated primary afferent neurons.  This “B”-rich lectin preferentially agglutinates blood group B cells and is specific for α-galactose residues. 

DyLight 594 GSL I-B4 isolectin is produced by using special conjugation procedures to incorporate DyLight 594 into our affinity-purified lectin. This conjugate has an appropriate number of fluorochromes bound which provide the maximum fluorescence and optimum staining characteristics for this particular lectin. This reagent is supplied essentially free of unconjugated fluorochromes and inactive lectin.

Technical Information

GSL I is a family of glycoproteins with molecular weights of approximately 114 kDa. There are two types of subunits, termed A and B, with slightly different molecular weights. These subunits combine to form tetrameric structures, resulting in five isolectins. The A -rich lectin preferentially agglutinates blood group A erythrocytes and thus appears to be specific for α-N-acetylgalactosamine residues, while the B -rich lectin preferentially agglutinates blood group B cells and is specific for α-galactose residues. Our GSL I is a mixture of the five isolectins. GSL I has been reported to bind several glycoproteins including laminin.

Accompanying each fluorescent lectin is an analysis data sheet summarizing the results of our quality control tests and providing pertinent information on the product. All of these reagents are supplied as solutions preserved with sodium azide.
