Preparation and Storage
Store product at 4 degree C if to be used immediately within two weeks. For long-term storage, aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing and store 6 months after receipt. Dilute required amount only prior to immediate use. Further dilutions can be made in assays buffer. Notes: Sodium azide is a potent inhibitor of peroxidase and should not be added HRP conjugates. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
Other Notes
Small volumes of Arachis hypogaea lectin vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
Arachis hypogaea lectin
Lectins are derived from the extracts of plants, animals, viruses and microorganisms and are known to agglutinate red blood cells. These agglutinins can select cell types according to blood group activities utilizing sugar-binding mechanisms.

Lectins form precipitates with glycoconjugates and are useful for identifying or separating oligosaccharides with identical sugar compositions such as galactose, mannose or glucose.
Arachis hypogaea (PNA, Peanut Agglutinin), 110kD, is composed of four identical subunits of approximately 27kD each, is galactose-specific, with strong anti-T-antigen activity. T-antigen is present in many glycoconjugates such as M and N blood groups, gangliosides, and many other soluble and membrane-associated glycoproteins and glycolipids. PNA does not agglutinate normal human erythrocytes, but strongly agglutinates neuraminidase-treated red blood cells. The presence of Ca++ can enhance the binding of PNA to receptors. Asialo GM1 ganglioside is also thought to be a major cell surface receptor for PNA. PNA is useful in normal and tumor tissue determination for transitional mucosa malignancies.
