Medicago AB Products Are Available Worldwide
For Research Use Only
Glycine max lectin SBA (Soy bean agglutinin) is isolated from soy bean by affinity chromatography. The protein has 4 subunits and a molecular weight of 120 kDa. SBA is not blood group specific. It displays carbohydrate binding specifity for N-acetyl-D-galactosamine and galactopyranosyl residues of glycoproteins.
The lectin interacts better with neuramidase-treated cells than with untreated cells. It possesses selective affinity for lymphocytes and human CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells. Immobilized conjugates of SBA are therefore important tools for removing T-cells in bone marrow transplantation.
Glycine max lectin is supplied without preservatives as a white to cream-coloured lyophilized powder from 50 mM NH4HCO3, 10 µM CaCl2.
