Lectin histochemistry for detection of the oligosaccharides in the testis of the chick embryo.


The oligosaccharidic content, distribution and changes of the glycoconjugates in the testis of the chick embryo, from the 8th day of incubation to hatching, were studied using a battery of seven HRP-conjugated lectins (DBA, SBA, PNA, ConA, WGA, LTA, and UEA I). Our findings showed that ConA and WGA appeared to characterize the spermatogonia during their… (More)
