Lectin from Pisum sativum (pea) is a tetrameric glycoprotein of about 48 kDa. It is isolated from peas. Pisum sativum agglutinin is specific for α-D-glucose and α-D-mannose.
Lectin from Pisum sativum (pea) has been used to determine acrosomal status and viability of spermatozoa and to assess sperm acrosome reaction (AR) patterns

Lectin from Pisum sativum (pea) possess anti-hepatoma effect and mitogenicity to lymphocytes, like concanavalin A (Con A).
PSA is not blood group specific, but has an affinity for terminal α-D-mannosyl residues. PSA is a mitogen similar to concanavalin A.
Conjugates are prepared from affinity purified lectin.
Agglutination activity is expressed in μg/ml and is determined from serial dilutions in phosphate buffered saline, pH 6.8, of a 1 mg/ml solution. This activity is the lowest concentration to agglutinate a 2% suspension of human erythrocytes after 1 hr incubation at 25 °C.
