GSL II is affinity purified tetramer that contains a single type of 30kD subunit. It has insecticidal structure/function, the first GlcNAc binding legume lectin proven to have insecticidal activity. This lectin has a carbohydrate specificity for alphaGal and alphaGalNAc and elutes with galactose or N-acetylgalactosamine. Increasing the number of N-acetylglucosamine residues beyond two does not improve affinity. It has been reported to be unique in its ability to recognize exclusively alpha- or β-linked N-acetylglucosamine residues on the nonreducing terminal oligosaccharides. This lectin shows specificity for blood group A(-SA) greater than blood group B(-SA).
A (-SA) >> B (-SA)
Chitin Hydrolysate or N-Acetylglucosamine
