AffyPure™ (Affinity-Purified) lectins are proteins that bind to specific carbohydrates in cellular membranes. They bind molecules together without initiating an immune response. Their sugar specificity allows agglutination of particular blood group cells. Several lectins also act as mitogens for specific cell types.
GlycoMatrix™ AffyPure™ lectins have a purity level of 95-98%.
