Product Description

Wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) is affinity purified lectin that non-enzymatically binds to N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and sialic acid residues of glycoproteins and glycolipids. This lectin protects Triticum vulgaris from insects, yeast and bacteria. WGA consists of two subunits and has a molecular weight of 36,000. It is an acidic protein and has mitogenic activity toward lymphocytes. It agglutinates erythrocytes and most types of malignant cells. WGA, similar to insulin, enhances the rate of glucose oxidation in isolated fat cells. It inhibits C5a receptor interaction and is used for isolation and fractionation of insulin receptors.Some lectin trigger mitogenic activities in differentiated or resting cells. These lectins do not cause toxicity. A right concentration of affinity purified Triticum vulgaris (Wheat) Lectin (WGA) is provided in a sterile solution for stimulating cells that respond to the lectin.
