Biological Activity:Mitogenic, immunosuppressive and phagocytic activity. The lectin agglutinates human ABO erythrocytes equally well. It is mitogenic to mouse spleen lymphocytes but is not cytotoxic. See: Phytochemistry 1988 (27) 313-317 It also inhibits the phagocytic activity of peritoneal macrophages to homologous erythrocytes and induces blastoid transformation of spoleen cells. See: Immunology 1994 (83); 410-413
Source Tissue:Seed
Specificity:GalNAc(Gal-beta(1,3)GalNA-alpha -O-R (T-antigen); GalNAc-alpha-O-R (Tn antigen)
Inhibitors:
