Product Description

Allium sativum lectin (ASA) is isolated from garlic and purified with affinity chromatography. It is a dimer of two subunits. ASA binds to a number of α1-2-linked mannose residues. The lectin recognizes internal mannose and binds to the core pentasaccharide of N-linked glycans. In addition, the removal of sialic acids enhances binding activity. ASA has shown antiproliferative and apoptosis-inducing activity, making it a relative subject in cancer research.

Purified ASA is labeled with Tetramethylrhodamine isothiocyanate (TRITC) and comes in a stabilized liquid form. TRITC is a bright orange or red-fluorescent dye with excitation ideally suited to the 532-nm laser line. It has an excitation maximum at 546 nm and an emission maximum at 569 nm. Conjugated form of TRITC is used for cellular imaging applications.
