Vertebrate lectins, Comparison of properties of beta-galactoside- binding lectins from tissues of calf and chicken

Beta-galactoside-binding lectins were isolated from various calf tissues and from chicken hearts by affinity chromatography on asialofetuin-Sepharose, and were compared with respect to biochemical characteristics, binding properties, antigenic cross-reactivity, and cellular localization. The lectins are all thiol group-requiring, divalent cation-independent… CONTINUE READING
