The binding of 14 lectins were performed on paraffin-embedded sections of the olfactory bulb of Triturus to identify specific glycoconjugates on the cell surface of primary olfactory projections. The histochemical lectin staining patterns indicate that the membrane of olfactory neurons terminating in the main olfactory bulb contained prevalently oligosaccharides with alpha-acetyl-D-galactosamine as terminal residues. In the accessory olfactory bulb, instead, the primary olfactory projections… CONTINUE READING
