Antigen Background

Lectins are highly specific carbohydrate binding proteins useful in carbohydrate and cell membrane studies, as well as cell agglutination and typing techniques.


Wheat Germ lectin (WGA)


Reconstitute with 2 ml deionized water.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2


Anti-Lectin, Triticum vulgaris antibody produced in rabbit was used in immunolabeling experiments.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Wheat germ agglutinin is a lectin isolated from Triticum vulgaris that has affinity for chitin oligosaccharides, peptidoglycans and glycolipids via sialic acid residues. It is not specific for human blood groups and has been identified as antagonists of botulinum and tetanus toxins.
