General description

Wheat germ lectin, also known as wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), has a molecular weight of 36 kDa. It shows affinity to 1,4-N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) oligomers and is useful in studying surface components of C. neoformans.

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.

Target description

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