The age-dependent lectin-binding ability of Rhizobium trifolii 0403 capsular polysaccharide (CPS) was examined by following the development of the capsule and its ability to interact with the white clover lectin trifoliin A. Bacteria grown on agar plates for 3, 5, 7, 14, and 21 days were examined by electron microscopy and immunofluorescence microscopy with antibodies prepared against either R. trifolii 0403 CPS or trifoliin A after pretreatment with the lectin. The capsule began to develop at… Expand
