Carbohydrates were located on the surface of Phytomonas davidi using ultrastructural cytochemistry, and agglutination induced by lectins which bind to residues of mannose, N-acetylglucosamine, galactose, N-acetylgalactosamine, fucose and sialic acid. The surface charge of the cells was analysed by the binding of cationic particles (colloidal iron and cationized ferritin) to the cell surface and by cell electrophoretic mobility (EPM). Based on observations of binding of cationic particles to the… CONTINUE READING
