Lectin-like receptor for alpha 1-acid glycoprotein in the epithelium of the rat prostate gland and seminal vesicles.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A receptor for alpha 1-acid glycoprotein glycoforms AGP-B and AGP-C in the epithelium of the rat prostate gland and seminal vesicles is described. METHODS The interaction between AGP-glycoforms and their receptor is a lectin-like interaction confirmed by inhibition of the binding by mannose and N-Acetyl-D-glucosamine. RESULTS In vitro the… (More)
