Ulex Europaeus is a European gorse shrub with fragrant golden-yellow flowers. Ulex Europaeus-I Lectin is a 46 kDa glycoprotein known to interact with -L fucosyl residues in oligosaccharides present on the membranes of human blood group O erythrocytes, human endothelial cells and a variety of human and animal epithelial cells.This antibody reacts with Ulex Europaeus Lectin 1 bound to human endothelial cells of normal and neoplastic blood and lymphatic vesicles. It also reacts with human epithelia such as in the colon, bronchus, epidermis, sweat gland ducts and hair follicles. It also reacts with for Ulex Europaeus Lectin 1 bound to vasclular endothelium and squamous epithelium of human tonsil. While erythrocytes may be stained, no other tonsilar elements are reactive with the antibody.This antibody may be useful in the detection of vascular tumors, the investigation of vascular invasion by tumor cells, for determination of Ulex Europaeus Lectin 1 binding to normal, embryonal, dysplastic and neoplastic epithelia and the study of storage diseases such as fucosidosis.
