We studied the distribution of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA)-bindable glycoconjugates in the vestibular ampulla of mongolian gerbils. WGA was conjugated with gold particles and applied to Lowicryl K4M sections of the ampulla. WGA-binding sites were found on the cupula and some of the secretory granules and Golgi apparatuses in the supporting cells of the… CONTINUE READING
