|Lecster ID:97|| Edit Entry |
| Common Nomenclature:|
|Characterization Notes:||Haemagglutination inhibition experiments with 17 saccharides and glycoproteins failed to show clear-cut carbohydrate specificity, with only mucin and fetuin having any inhibitory effect, so that the binding may be complex. See: Dev Comp Immunol 1990 Fall;14(4):405-14|
|Biological Activity:||The lectin agglutinates a variety of erythrocytes including human A, B, O red blood cells as well as human lymphocytes.|
|Source Tissue:||Whole body homogenate|
|Inhibitors:||Hemagglutination activity is inhibited best by N,N',N"-triacetylchitotriose, followed by N,N'-diacetylchitobiose, which is half as inhibitory.|
