A method for the fine-structural demonstration of lectin receptors
Journal/Book: Histochemistry 84 (2), 187-190. 1986;
Abstract: A new two-step method using an Fc-fragment/ferritin conjugate as amarker for the visualization of lectin-binding sites on neuronal andother cell membranes is described. In this study of rat synaptosomes,three lectins were tested: concanavalin A, mistletoe lectin I and wheatgerm agglutinin. The specificity of the method was proved by controlexperiments. Author.
