Example text

During the last two decades the bacterial hemagglutinins have been intensively studied. Certain methodological aspects of the numerous studies on the adhesins have been reviewed, m Red blood cells (RBCs) of various animal species provide a model target for evaluating the specificity of bacterial lectins because of the large n u m b e r and natural variability of glycoproteins and glycolipids on their surfaces. The recognition of receptors on the surfaces of various types of RBCs is related to the capacity of the bacteria carrying the adhesin to 1 I.

The specificity and sensitivity of the binding assay can be improved when isolated immobilized RBC membrane components are used as a target. The details of the procedures are described elsewhere in this volume (see [8] and [12]). D e t e r m i n a t i o n of Specificity of A d h e s i n s The above-described basic procedures can be used in the following studies for characterization of the adhesins. Comparing Hemagglutination Capacity of WiM Strain (Clinical Isolate) with Variants, Mutants, or Transformants that Differ in Expression of Hemagglutinin.
