Calcium-dependent lectin activity with novel distribution on thymocyte subsets.

Abstract:

In this study we use carbohydrate probes to search for novel cell surface lectins in the immune system. Many carbohydrate binding proteins are members of the C-type lectin superfamily, whose ligand binding is dependent on calcium. To identify potential new members of this superfamily, fluorescein-conjugated carbohydrate polymers were used to probe for calcium-dependent cell surface binding. This approach offers advantages over the use of monoclonal antibody probes since only carbohydrate bind...
