These antibodies to lectins are produced by hyperimmunizing goats with pure lectins. Following conventional purification steps, specific antibody is isolated by affinity chromatography on lectin-agarose columns. Each anti-lectin is supplied lyophilized in buffered saline. These highly purified specific antibodies provide excellent intermediate reagents for localizing lectin receptors in tissues and on cells, or following lectin transport in neuronal tracing.
Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
