The wheat germ agglutinin-gold labeled ovomucoid (WGA-Ovo-G) method has been employed in the ultrastructural localization of WGA surface receptor sites on gluteraldehyde-fixed normal human and guinea pig bone marrow cells. The number of gold particles per micron of cell surface were counted and data subjected to statistical analysis. WGA labeling of the bone marrow cells was found to be quite heavy and evenly distributed along the cell surface. Only macrophages, in both species, and a number of… CONTINUE READING
