Product Description

Galanthus nivalis lectin is isolated from snowdrop bulbs and has a molecular weight of 52 kDa. The lectin contains little or no carbohydrate and does not need Ca2+ or Mn2+ for binding, since unlike most mannose-specific lectins it is not a metalloprotein. Structures containing (α-1,3) mannose residues are preferred for binding. Unlike the majority of mannose-binding lectins, GNA does not bind alpha-linked glucose.

Galanthus nivalis lectin is supplied without preservatives as a lyophilized powder.

Larger quantities are available on request.

For laboratory use only.
