Wheat Germ Agglutinins

Lectins purified from the germinating seeds of common wheat (Triticum vulgare); these bind to certain carbohydrate moieties on cell surface glycoproteins and are used to identify certain cell populations and inhibit or promote some immunological or physiological activities. There are at least two isoforms of this lectin.
Also Known As:
Wheat Germ Agglutinin Isolectin 1; Wheat Germ Agglutinin Isolectin 2; Agglutinins, Wheat Germ; Lectins, Triticum Vulgare; Lectins, Wheat Germ; Triticum Vulgare Lectins; Wheat Germ Lectins
