|Salvia sclarea : Fetid clary sage|
Molecular structure of
Fetid clary sage:SSA
|Lecster ID:577|| Edit Entry |
|Source Organism:||Fetid clary sage|
| Common Nomenclature:||SSA|
|Characterization Notes:||Tn is a specific marker of many human carcinomas.|
|Biological Activity:||Tn antigen (GalNAcalpha-O-Ser/Thr). The purified lectin agglutinates specifically Tn erythrocytes and, at higher concentrations, also Cad erythrocytes. Native A, B, or O red blood cells are not agglutinated by the lectin and, even after treatment with sialidase or papain, these cells are not recognized.|
|Specificity:||The lectin was found to be specific for terminal N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residues.|
