The binding patterns of four different lectins conjugated to horseradish peroxidase were investigated in the nervous system of juvenile Xenopus borealis. Only the lectin soybean agglutinin revealed a very selective binding pattern, which was restricted to the olfactory system. The olfactory and vomeronasal epithelia, the olfactory and accessory olfactory nerves and the olfactory and accessory olfactory bulbs were all labelled. The ventral portions of the olfactory nerve and bulb were however… CONTINUE READING
