Pisum sativum agglutinin is nearly identical in structure and carbohydrate specificity to Lens culinaris agglutinin. The lectin has specificity toward α-linked mannose-containing oligosaccharides, with an N-acetylchitobiose-linked α-fucose residue included in the receptor sequence. Calcium and manganese ions are required for activity.
