Solanum Tuberosum (Potato) Lectin (STL, PL), Unconjugated (L-1160-5)

[text-backorder]

Description

This lectin binds oligomers of N-acetylglucosamine and some bacterial cell wall oligosaccharides containing N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetylmuramic acid. Although the carbohydrate binding specificity is similar to wheat germ agglutinin and Datura stramonium lectin, several differences have been reported for potato lectin.

Specifications

Unit Size5 mg
ApplicationsGlycobiology
Recommended UsageAlthough many buffers can be employed for reconstituting and diluting this lectin, 10 mM HEPES buffered saline, pH 8.5, 0.1 mM CaCl2 is recommended.
Recommended Storage2-8 °C; for long term storage, aliquots may be stored frozen or preserved with 0.08% sodium azide in the recommended buffer and stored at 2-8 °C
ConjugateUnconjugated
Sugar SpecificityN-Acetylglucosamine

Technical Information

Solanum tuberosum lectin consists of two identical 50 kDa subunits. The subunits can dissociate in solution to produce a monomeric form of the lectin which does not agglutinate cells. This lectin binds oligomers of N-acetylglucosamine and some bacterial cell wall oligosaccharides containing N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetylmuramic acid. Although the carbohydrate binding specificity is similar to wheat germ agglutinin and Datura stramonium lectin, several differences have been reported for potato lectin.

Inhibiting/Eluting Sugar: Chitin Hydrolysate
