Glycoconjugates in exfoliation syndrome. A lectin histochemical study of the ciliary body and lens.


The binding of ten biotin-coupled lectins with different carbohydrate specificities to exfoliative material and neighbouring tissues was studied in 16 formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human eyes. Eight of the eyes were exfoliation positive while the rest were exfoliation negative. Exfoliative material reacted intensely with Lens culinaris (LCA… (More)
