A survey of lectin binding in Paramecium.


To better understand the general distribution of glycoproteins and the distribution of specific glycoprotein-bound sugar residues in Paramecium, a survey of the binding pattern of selected lectins was carried out in P. tetraurelia, P. caudatum, and P. multimicronucleatum. Lectins studied were concanavalin A (Con A), Griffonia simplicifolia agglutinins I and… (More)
