Detection of endogenous receptors for carbohydrate ligands in primary and metastatic human renal cell carcinoma

Frozen sections of primary and metastatic human renal cell carcinoma (RCC) were analyzed for the expression of endogeneous binding sites for carbohydrates. Fluorescent neoglycoproteins, carrying chemically linked carbohydrate residues on bovine serum albumin as a carrier protein, were applied to 44 primary tumor specimens. In the majority of specimens… CONTINUE READING
