Extracts of Aloe barbadensis Miller have been found to induce cell proliferation and haemagglutination effects. An ethanol extract of Aloe was found to be strongly haemagglutinating. The carbohydrate-agglutinin binding was observed to be glucosamine dependent and the site of recognition of this particular sugar has been identified. Characterizations of the haemagglutinin by different treatments have shown that it is pH sensitive and heat and trypsin resistant.
