An acidic glycoconjugate containing mannose, galactose and phosphate in approximately equimolar amounts was extracted from Leishmania donovani promastigotes and partially characterized. The glycoconjugate could be metabolically labeled with either [3H]mannose or [3H]galactose and was extractable from a delipidated residue fraction with water/ethanol/diethyl ether/pyridine/concentrated NH4OH (15:15:5:1:0.017) at 25 degrees C. The radioactively labeled glycoconjugate was found to possess the… CONTINUE READING
