Anti-Pectic polysaccharide (beta-1,4-galactan) [LM5] Antibody

This rat IgG monoclonal antibody was generated against polysaccharide and recognizes land plants pectic polysaccharide, beta-1,4-galactan.


  • Reacts with land plants pectic polysaccharide, beta-1,4-galactan
  • No cross-reactivity with (1-3)-Β-D-galactans or (1-6)-Β-D-galactans
  • Suitable for Immunofluorescence and ELISA applications

The antibody was generated using a neoglycoprotein (galactotetraose-BSA). It recognizes a linear tetrasaccharide in (1-4)-Β-D-galactans. It has no cross-reactivity with (1-3)-Β-D-galactans or (1-6)-Β-D-galactans. It can recognize pectic polysaccharides in several species. In competitive inhibition ELISA, antibody binding to (1-4)-Β-D-galactan was inhibited (50%) by 58 μg/ml (1-4)-Β-D-galactotetraose and by 0.7 μg/ml lupin (1-4)-Β-D-galactan. Homogalacturonan is a pectic polysaccharide made up of α-1,4 linked galacturonic acid residues. Pectin is made up of a complex set of polysaccharides that are found in most primary cell walls and are particularly abundant in the non-woody parts of terrestrial plants. Pectin is a major component of the middle lamella, where it helps to bind cells together, but is also found in primary cell walls.
