Source Organism:
Species:Homo sapiens
Common Nomenclature:Human Placenta Lectins (HPL-H, HPL-BG)
Index Nomenclature:LECh.Hom.Sap.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:HPL-H binds heparin; HPL-BG is a 14K lectin that binds beta-galactoside. The interaction of HPL-H with naturally occurring heparin-like molecules may physiologically be involved in modulatory regulation of heparin-mediated processes.
