Wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), Ricinis communis agglutinin (RCA) and Lens culinaris (LC) lectins have been used to characterize carbohydrates of neuronal membrane systems in rat and chick cerebellum. WGA and RCA both label Golgi membrane cisternae on the side of the membrane facing the cisternal space but they do not label other elements of the granular and agranular endoplasmic reticulum (ER). WGA labels the plasma membrane generally and WGA binding sites are concentrated within the synaptic… CONTINUE READING
