Canavalia ensiformis (Concanavalin A, Jackbean) (FITC)
Description:
Con A is a tetramer of four identical ~26kD subunits at or above neutral pH. Below pH 5.6, Con A dissociates into active dimers of ~52,000D. Con A recognizes alpha-linked mannose found in many glycoproteins. Lectins are derived from the extracts of plants, animals, viruses and microorganisms. They 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 which is useful for identifying or separating oligosaccharides with identical sugar compositions such as galactose, mannose or glucose.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunodiffusion and IEP. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. FITC conjugates are sensitive to light.
