Table 1. Lectins assayed

This table lists the lectins we used in our study, the laboratory from which we obtained them, and their corresponding blocking sugar. Con A is Concanavaline A; GNA is Galanthium nivalis; WGA is Wheat Germ Agglutinin (Triticum vulgaris); PKM is pokeweed mitogen (or Phytolacca americana lectin). All blocking sugars were obtained from SIGMA.
