This sugar is provided for use as an inhibitor of lectin-conjugate binding or for eluting glycoproteins or other glycoconjugates from columns of agarose lectins. This sugar is supplied as a dry powder. When reconstituted in 5 ml of water, the resulting sugar solution is 400 mM.
Reconstitute the sugar in 5 ml of distilled or deionized water or in 5 ml of a buffer
(e.g. 10 mM HEPES buffered saline, pH 7.5-pH 8.0) or salt solution compatible with
the lectin under study. If reconstituted in 5 ml, this sugar will be 400 mM.
Reconstituted sugar solutions should be stored frozen or stored at 4 ºC using sodium azide (0.08%) as a preservative.
