This lectin is a 150,000 molecular weight tetrameric glycoprotein consisting of four disulfide-linked chains, two of about 36,000D and two of about 38,000D. Sambucus nigra lectin binds preferentially to sialic acid attached to terminal galactose in (a-2,6), and to a lesser degree, (a-2,3), linkage. Binding is also inhibited to some extent by lactose or galactose. This lectin does not appear to bind sialic acid linked to N-acetylgalactosamine. SNA has been reported to inhibit cell-free protein synthesis. Fluorescein labeled Sambucus Nigra Lectin is produced by using the highest quality fluorescein isothiocyanate, our affinity-purified lectin, and special conjugation procedures. Fluorescein labeled Sambucus Nigra Lectin has an appropriate number of fluorochromes bound which provide the maximum fluorescence and optimum staining characteristics for this particular lectin. This lectin is supplied essentially free of unconjugated fluorochromes and inactive lectin. Accompanying each fluorescent lectin is an analysis data sheet summarizing the results of our quality control tests and providing pertinent information on the product. All of these reagents are supplied as solutions perserved with sodium azide.
