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.

Inhibiting/Eluting Sugar: 100 mM lactose
