Product Description

GSL II is affinity purified tetramer that contains a single type of 30 kDa subunit. It has insecticidal structure/function, the first GlcNAc binding legume lectin proven to have insecticidal activity.

This lectin has a carbohydrate specificity for αGal and αGalNAc and elutes with galactose or N-acetylgalactosamine. Increasing the number of N-acetylglucosamine residues beyond two does not improve affinity. It has been reported to be unique in its ability to recognize exclusively α- or β-linked N-acetylglucosamine residues on the nonreducing terminal oligosaccharides. This lectin shows specificity for blood group A(-SA) greater than blood group B(-SA).

Texas Red is a red-fluorescent dye and when bound to Griffonia simplicifolia Lectin (GSL II) can show the binding pattern of this lectin in cellular imaging applications. There is very little overlap between the emission spectra of Texas Red and FITC making this combination ideal for dual-labeling experiments. Rhodamine dyes, such as Texas Red, are more photostable and less sensitive to pH change when compared to other dyes such as fluorescein.
