Target description

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

Physical form

Lyophilized from 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2.


Reconstitute with 2 mL deionized water.

Storage and Stability

Prior to reconstitution store the product at 2-8 °C. After reconstitution, the solution may be stored frozen in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.

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.
