Lens culinaris lectin or agglutinin (LCA) is isolated from Lens culinaris (lentil) seeds and purified by affinity chromatography. The lectin has two subunits and a molecular weight of 46 kDa and it forms a complex together with sucrose. Lectins are, due to their specific binding to carbohydrate structures on the cell surface or elsewhere useful in haematology, immunology or as specific markers for membrane glycoprotein structures. LCA's carbohydrate specificity is D-mannose and D-glucose and the two isomers LCA-A and LCA-B agglutinates human red blood cells, although this reaction is not blood group specific. LCA is also a useful component in affinity chromatography columns for the separation of glycoconjugates. Adding 60mM methylmannoside yields an inhibition with a lectin titer that is at least 16-fold weaker than the control. Addition of Mn2+ and Ca2+ to the reconstitution buffer will enhance hemagglutination activity.
