Lectin histochemistry of mammalian endothelium.

Abstract

Lectin-histochemical studies were performed on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues from ten mammalian species to demonstrate the pattern of carbohydrate residues in vascular endothelium. Ten different biotinylated lectins were used as probes and avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex (ABC) was used as visualant. Ricinus communis agglutinin-I (RCA-I) and wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) stained vascular endothelium in all species. Peanut agglutinin (PNA) stained vascular endothelium in all species only after preincubation with neuraminidase. Bandeirea simplicifolia agglutinin-I (BS-I) stained vascular endothelium in all species but human, while Ulex europeus agglutinin-I (UEA-I) stained only human endothelium. Individual differences in staining of human vascular endothelium were noted with BS-I and succinylated-WGA (SWGA). Similarly, individual differences in staining of animal vascular endothelium were noted with soybean agglutinin (SBA) after preincubation with neuraminidase. Finally, Concanavalia ensiformis agglutinin (Con A), Dolichos biflorus agglutinin (DBA) and Lens culinaris agglutinin (LCA) did not stain vascular endothelium in any of the species studied.
