Lectin localization in human nerve by biochemically defined lectin-binding glycoproteins, neoglycoprotein and lectin-specific antibody
Divinylsulphone-activated agarose is an attractive alternative to several of the activated supports usually used. Unlike CNBr-activated gels, it does not leak the immobilized protein at high pH. It reacts readily with proteins at near-neutral pH (unlike the epoxy-activated supports). Generally, divinylsulphone-activated agarose reacts with amino, hydroxyl, and sulphydryl groups, thus allowing immobilization of a wide spectrum of ligands. Moreover, it is available in an aqueous suspension free of organic solvents and neither requires time-consuming swelling nor washing.
