Chicken lactose lectin: Cell-to-cell or cell-to-matrix adhesion molecule?

Abstract

Endogenous chicken muscle lectin isolated by lactose affinity chromatography inhibits myoblast fusion. Similar lectins isolated from embryonic brain, heart, and liver and from adult intestine exhibit the same ability. Elevated levels of any of these lectins canceled the inhibitory effect. Peanut agglutinin isolated by the same procedure had no effect at any… (More)
