Unconjugated, Succinylated Wheat Germ Agglutinin (WGA)

Cat. No: L-1020S
Price: $169.00
Unit Size: 10 mg

Overview

This derivative has been reported to have properties distinct from the native lectin. Evidence suggests that Succinylated Wheat Germ agglutinin does not bind to sialic acid residues, unlike the native form, but retains its specificity toward N-acetylglucosamine.

Unit Size 10 mg
Country of Manufacture United States
Applications Immunohistochemistry / Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence, Blotting Applications, Glycobiology
Conjugate Unconjugated
Sugar Specificity N-Acetylglucosamine

More Information

This derivative has been reported to have properties distinct from the native lectin. Evidence suggests that Succinylated Wheat Germ agglutinin does not bind to sialic acid residues, unlike the native form, but retains its specificity toward N-acetylglucosamine. Using conjugates of the native lectin and the succinylated form can provide a system to distinguish between sialylated glycoconjugates and those containing only N-acetylglucosamine structures.

Inhibiting/Eluting Sugar: Chitin Hydrolysate or 500 mM N-acetylglucosamine with salt and/or acid elution generally required
