We have previously demonstrated that the interactions between branched chain oligosaccharides and glycopeptides isolated from glycoproteins and glycolipids with specific lectins lead to the formation of homopolymeric carbohydrate-protein cross-linked complexes, even in the presence of mixtures of the carbohydrates or lectins [cf. Bhattacharyya, L., Fant, J., Lonn, H., & Brewer, C. F. (1990) Biochemistry 29, 7523-7530]. Recently, we have shown that highly ordered cross-linked lattices are formed… CONTINUE READING
