Concanavalin A Agglutination of Intestinal Cells From the Human Fetus

Concanavalin A Agglutination of Intestinal Cells From the Human Fetus

M M Weiser. Science.

Abstract

Concanavalin A markedly agglutinated isolated epithelial cells from the intestine of the human fetus but not from the intestine of the adult. Wheat germ agglutinin only moderately agglutinated cells from the intestine of an adult. These results extend the studies of concanavalin A agglutination of embryonic cells to human tissue, and they suggest that concanavalin A may be reacting with a common antigen on the fetal cell membrane.
