Unconjugated Maackia Amurensis Lectin I (MAL I)

Cat. No: L-1310
Price: $169.00
Unit Size: 5 mg

Overview

Maackia amurensis lectin I binds gal (β-1,4) glcNAc but tolerates substitution of N-acetyllactosamine with sialic acid at the 3 position of galactose. However, MAL I does not appear to bind this structure when substitution with sialic acid is on the 6 position of galactose.

Cat. No. L-1310-5

More Information

This lectin is the leucoagglutinin or mitogenic isolectin from Maackia seeds. Maackia amurensis lectin I binds gal (β-1,4) glcNAc but tolerates substitution of N-acetyllactosamine with sialic acid at the 3 position of galactose. However, MAL I does not appear to bind this structure when substitution with sialic acid is on the 6 position of galactose.
