The purification and serological and chemical properties of Vicia graminea lectin (VGA) and Vicia unijuga lectin (VUA) were described, and then the binding-specificity of anti-M and -N antibodies and both the lectins was discussed in this review. On the basis of the facts that Vgu glycoproteins which react with either VGA or VUA but not with anti-M and -N antibodies and were not detected in human normal organ tissues and sera, were separated and identified as mucin-type glycoproteins with very… Expand
