Recombinant Biotinylated MOA [PR-29bt]


recombinant marasmius oreades agglutinin Lectin (mushroom)-biotin

SKU: PR-29bt Categories: , Quantity: 500 ug | Host: E. coli | Conjugate: Biotin | Usage: RBC agglutination |

Marasmius oreades agglutinin (MOA) derives from the Marasmius oreades mushroom. MOA consists of an intact 33 kDa and truncated 23 kDa subunit as well as a 10 kDa polypeptide. MOA has been used to study glomerular endothelial injury and to agglutinate B-type red blood cells.

This recombinant protein binds specifically to blood group B antigens and has a high affinity to alpha-Gal, a carbohydrate found on B-type blood cells. Recombinant MOA was expressed in E. coli and purified using affinity chromatography. This product is routinely tested by coomassie stain of a SDS-PAGE gel and agglutination assay.

Applications include red blood cell (RBC) agglutination.
