Binding pattern of ferritin-labeled lectins (RCAI and WGA) during neural tube closure in the bantam embryo

Abstract

Cell surface sugar residues in neurulating ectoderms of bantam chick embryos of stage 4–11 were examined using ferritin-labeledRicinus communis (RCAI) and Wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). RCAI binding sites densely covered the apical surfaces of the basal plate cells during the neural plate stage (1,322.8±28.8 ferritin particles/μm2). As neural tube formation… (More)
