Wheat Germ Coated Surface offers a powerful and sensitive instrument for binding in specific way the carbohydrate fraction of glycoproteins, enzymes and cell membranes.

Wheat Germ Coated Surface shows specific affinity for molecules containing N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residue and binds in specific way the carbohydrate fraction of glycoproteins, enzymes and cell membranes.

Wheat Germ Lectin, belonging to the lectins family, is a Hemagglutinin obtained from the common wheat germ Triticum Vulgaris. It is well known that lectins have been used extensively for the isolation of glyco-conjugates and glycoproteins with specific carbohydrate structures.

The optical properties of polystyrene remain unchanged, allowing the use of the modified surface as a powerful tool for diagnostic assays.

Examples of applications for Wheat Germ Coated surface

  • studies of surfaces of normal and transformed cells
  • glycoprotein purification including membrane glycoproteins
  • studies of cell surface changes during development and the cell cycle
