Product Description

Ulex europaeus agglutinin (UEA I+II) is affinity purified consists of two hemagglutinins (UEA I and UEA II). The two lectins can be separated by salt or ethanol precipitation. Both have been sequenced and are homologous with each other, as well as homologous with other legume lectins of various specificities. Carbohydrate-binding peptides have been isolated for each lectin after peptidase digestion, and these peptides also exhibit homology with other such peptides. UEA I interacts specifically with blood group H type 2 antigen, which is expressed in individuals with type O blood and to a lesser degree in individuals with type A or B blood. UEA II is not blood group specific but the best inhibitors are the H type oligosaccharides.Texas Red is a red-fluorescent dye and when bound to Ulex europaeus Lectin (UEA I+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.
