Biochemical Physiological Actions Con A is not blood group specific but has an affinity for terminal α-D-mannosyl and α-D-glucosyl residues. Ca2+ and Mn2+ ions are required for activity. Con A dissociates into dimers at pH 5.6 or below. Between pH 5.8 and pH 7.0, Con A exists as a tetramer; above pH 7.0 higher aggregates are formed. Con A exhibits mitogenic activity which is dependent on its degree of aggregation. Succinylation results in an active dimeric form which remains a dimer above pH 5.6. Con-A binds specifically to mannosyl and glucosyl residues of polysaccharides and glycoproteins. Unmodified hydroxyl groups at the C3, C4 and C6 positions of D-glucopyranosyl or D-mannopyranosyl rings may be essential for binding. Each subunit of Con-A contains one calcium ion and one manganese ion. Removal of these cations by dialysis under acidic conditions abolishes the carbohydrate-binding activity.
