名称: Biotinylated Hippeastrum Hybrid Lectin (HHL, AL)
This biotinylated lectin conjugate is prepared from affinity-purified lectin and is optimally labeled with biotin. Essentially free of inactive lectin conjugate and containing no free biotin, this biotinylated lectin provides an ideal intermediate for examining glycoconjugates using the Biotin-Avidin System. First the biotin-labeled lectin is added, followed by the VECTASTAIN® ABC Reagent, Avidin D conjugate, or streptavidin derivative. Another possible application is in the isolation of lymphokines and other products of mitogenic stimulation.
Amaryllis lectin binds only alpha mannose residues, not alpha glucosyl structures in contrast to Con A, PSA and LCA. Like NPL there appears to be an extended binding site for polymannose structures, not requiring mannose to be at the non-reducing terminus. HHL binds both (a -1,3) and (a-1,6) linked mannose structures, as well as some yeast galactomannans.
