AffyPure™ (Affinity-Purified) lectins are plant proteins that bind to specific carbohydrates in cellular membranes. These proteins bind molecules together without initiating an immune response, and their sugar specificity allows agglutination of particular blood group cells. Many lectins act as mitogens for specific cell types. These lectins have a purity level of 95-98%.
AffyPure™ lectins are sold by PlantMedia™ in partnership with GlycoMatrix™. Visit www.glycomatrix.com for other lectins and their conjugates.
