The occurrence of N-acetylneuraminic acid and N-glycolylneuraminic acid residues in preparations of the slug Arion lusitanicus (Gastropoda) was determined by sodium dodecyl sulphate electrophoresis of the proteins followed by lectin blots stained with the sialic acid specific lectin from Maackia amurensis, by the sensitivity of this binding to sialidase from Clostridium perfringens, by specific fluorescent labelling of sialic acids with 1,2-diamino-4,5-methylenedioxybenzene, by the… CONTINUE READING
