Lectins are glycoproteins able to bind carbohydrate structures specifically. In this study we applied six different lectins on normal renal tissue to investigate their specificity for different segments of the renal tubular system. The following lectins were used: jacalin, peanut agglutinin (PNA), wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), phytohemagglutinin E (PHA-E), concanavalin A (Con A), and Dolichos biflorus agglutinin (DBA). Particular attention was paid to jacalin lectin as its staining properties… CONTINUE READING
