Abstract

A rabbit hepatic protein that specifically binds asialoglycoproteins is also a lectin that agglutinates untreated human and rabbit erythrocytes and neuraminidase-treated erythrocytes from rat, mouse, and guinea pig. Both binding of asialoglycoproteins and agglutination of erythrocytes appear to involve reaction on the same active sites of the hepatic protein.
