Ultrastructural localization of lectin-binding sites in normal skin.

The distribution of carbohydrate residues in keratinocytes of normal epidermis was studied. Normal skin was embedded in Lowicryl. Thin sections were incubated with concanavalin A (Con A), peanut agglutinin (PNA), wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), Ulex europaeus agglutinin I (UEA I), dolichos biflorus agglutinin (DBA), and soybean agglutinin (SBA). A positive… CONTINUE READING
