|Anguilla anguilla : Fresh water eel|
Molecular structure of
Fresh water eel:AAL
|Lecster ID:53|| Edit Entry |
|Source Organism:||Fresh water eel|
| Common Nomenclature:||AAL|
|Characterization Notes:||In immunohistochemical studies, the reactivity of AAA and UEA-I in normal pyloric mucosa from individuals with known Lewis and secretor status was analysed. AAA showed a broad reaction in the superficial pyloric mucosa from secretors and non-secretors, but AAA reactivity was more pronounced in Le(a+b-) individuals. On the other hand, UEA-I stained the superficial pyloric mucosa only from secretor individuals.|
|Biological Activity:||H(O) blood group|
|Inhibitors:||alpha-L-Fuc; Binding of AAL to gastric mucin was competitively neutralized by Le(a)-specific monoclonal antibodies.|
