Bauhinia Purpurea Lectin (BPL)

BPL binding appears to be highest for glycoconjugates containing galactosyl (β-1,3) N-acetylgalactosamine structures but oligosaccharides with a terminal α-linked N-acetylgalactosamine can also bind. Although binding specificity is similar to that of peanut agglutinin, tissue staining patterns of these two lectins are distinct.
