Antigen Background

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


Ulex europaeus from gorse seeds..

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lectin isolated from Ulex europaeus I is specific for α-L-fucose-containing glycocompounds. Due to this specificity it serves as a marker for vascular endothelial cells and tumors derived from them.

General description

The antibody may be used for studies of the vascular structures. It reacts specifically with UEA-I bound to human endothelial cells of normal and neoplastic blood and lymphatic vessels. Its uniform reaction with vessels enables differentation between vessels and artificial slits in the tissue.
