The binding specificity of Wisteria floribunda lectin (WFL) is not completely clear but this lectin appears to preferentially bind carbohydrate structures terminating in N-acetylgalactosamine linked α or β to the 3 or 6 position of galactose. This lectin has been used to fractionate lymphocyte populations, and although not mitogenic, elicits the production of lymphokines from murine splenocytes.
|Unit Size||5 mg|
|Applications||Glycobiology, Mitogenic Stimulation|
|Recommended Usage||Although 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. For preserving solutions stored at 4 ºC, 0.08% sodium azide can be used.|
