Antigen Background

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


Jack Bean Concanavalin A (Con A).


Reconstitute with 2 mL deionized water.

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2.


Anti-Lectin, Canavalia ensiformis antibody produced in rabbit was used to determine Con-A- in aphid honeydew by ELISA and study biological changes induced by lectins.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Concanavalin A is a lectin isolated from Canavalia ensiformis or Jack bean seeds. It has potent mitogenic effect on T cells and triggers the activity of both helper and suppressor T cells exhibiting immune regulator activity. Con A triggers autophagy by binding on the cell membrane glycoprotein and is internalized to the mitochondria. It activates immune response in liver and displays anti-hepatoma effect.
