Concanavalin A (Con A) is taken up by endocytosis in mature erythrocytes of newborn humans but not in adult red cells. Thin sections of neonatal cells incubated with ferritin-conjugated Con A at 37 degrees show ferritin clusters on invaginations at the surface and in intracellular vesicles, but such invaginations and vesicles are absent with adult cells. The endocytosis induced by ferritin-conjugated Con A is inhibited at 0 degrees, and by methyl-alpha-D-mannopyranoside at 37 degrees… CONTINUE READING
