Phytohemagglutin-Leukoagglutinin Application Notes Phytohemagglutin is very valuable in a wide variety of applications in vitro, including: blood grouping and erythrocyte polyagglutination studies, Mitogenic stimulation of lymphocytes, Lymphocyte subpopulation studies, Fractionation of cells and other particles, Histochemical studies of normal and pathological conditions. Reconstitute with water to a final concentration of 25 mg/mL (0.2 mL water for the 5 mg size). This concentration of the lectin has been used for iontophoresis and neuron transport.

Alternate Names: PHA-L; Phaseolus vulgaris agglutinin; PHA; PHA-P, Lectin from Phaseolus vulgaris
Biochemical Physiological Actions : PHA consists of two molecular species, an erythroagglutinin (PHA-E) which has low mitogenic activity and high erythroagglutinin activity, and leucoagglutinin (PHA-L) which has high mitogenic and leucoagglutinating activity, but very low erythroagglutinating activity. PHA-E is not blood group specific, but agglutination can be inhibited by certain oligosaccharides. PHA-P is the protein form of PHA prior to separation and purification of erythroagglutinin and leucoagglutinin. PHA-M is the mucoprotein form. Conjugates are prepared from the corresponding purified lectins.
