Mistletoe lectin I binding sites on the synaptosomes of the rat cerebral cortex
Journal/Book: Acta histochem. 77, 133-138. 1985;
Abstract: By means of combined lectinological and immunological methods weredemonstrated mistletoe lectin I binding sites on rat cerebral cortexsynaptosomes. The mistletoe lectin I binds specifically D-galactose.Galactosyl residues were established on the junctional and nonjunctionalsynaptosomal membrane, on the synaptic vesicles, mitochondria and onmyelin contamination. The relative number of mistletoe lectin Ireceptors per unit area of synaptosomal membrane was calculated. Author.
