The distribution of blood-group A and B determinants was studied by isolating blood-group ABH-active polyglycosyl peptides from delipidated human blood-group AB erythrocyte membranes after extensive digestion with pronase followed by chromatography on Bandeiraea simplicifolia I (BsI) lectin coupled to Sepharose. 20% of the polyglycosyl peptides were bound… CONTINUE READING
