Phaseolus vulgaris Agglutinin is used in wide variety of applications in vitro, including blood grouping and erythrocyte polyagglutination studies; Mitogenic stimulation of lymphocytes; Lymphocyte subpopulation studies; Fractionation of cells and other particles; Histochemical studies of normal and pathological conditions.

Product Description

Lectins are proteins or glycoproteins of non-immune origin that agglutinate cells and/or precipitate complex carbohydrates. Lectins are capable of binding glycoproteins even in presence of various detergents.

Biochem/physiol Actions

PHA consists of two molecular species, an erythroagglutinin (PHA-E) which has low mitogenic activity and high erythroagglutinin activity, and leucoagglutinin (PHA-L) which has high mitogenic and leucoagglutinating activity, but very low erythroagglutinating activity. PHA-E is not blood group specific, but agglutination can be inhibited by certain oligosaccharides. PHA-P is the protein form of PHA prior to separation and purification of erythroagglutinin and leucoagglutinin. PHA-M is the mucoprotein form. Conjugates are prepared from the corresponding purified lectins.

Recommended Use

Reconstitute with 5 mL distilled water for a final protein concentration of 1mg/mL in 0.40 mM sodium phosphate -6 mM NaCI, pH 7.45. Reconstitute with 0.2 mL distilled water for a final protein concentration of 25mg/mL (2.5%) in Buffer. This concentration of the lectin has been used for iontophoresis and neuron transport.
