SummaryThe hemolymph ofHelix pomatia contains a weak agglutinating activity. This lectin concentration was calculated to be about 1.8 μg·ml−1. Among the different red blood cells tested, pronase-treated sheep erythrocytes were found to be the most suitable indicator cells. Their agglutination could be inhibited by GalNAc and GlcNAc. The serum agglutinin was isolated by affinity chromatography using Sephadex G-200 as the matrix. It exhibited a single band in discontinuous PAGE. In the presence… CONTINUE READING
