Biotinylated (neo)glycoproteins were used to specifically detect endogenous sugar receptors such as lectins in sections of formaldehydefixed, paraffin-embedded tissue from meningiomas. The histochemical methods used consisted of the application of a carrier protein and various covalently linked sugar moieties, available mainly through chemical synthesis, in an optimized standard protocol. They proved valuable in elucidating differential binding patterns within the various meningioma subtypes… CONTINUE READING
