We examined the binding sites of Bandeiraea simplicifolia lectin I (BSL-I) and Vicia villosa agglutinin (VVA) which bind to the vomeronasal nerve of the rat. BSL-I stained the whole vomeronasal nerve and glomerular layers. VVA strongly stained the posterior 2/3, but weakly stained the anterior 1/3 of the glomerular layer. These results indicate that the glomeruli of the rat AOB have two subdivisions revealed by lectin histochemistry using BSL-I and VVA.
