AbstractThe uptake of different plant agglutinins by neurons of the central nervous system was studied. The following agglutinins were used: Concanavalin A. Tetragonolobus purpureus Lectin, Soybean Agglutinin and Wheat Germ Agglutinin. The agglutinins uptake by neurons of mesencephalon, rhombencephalon, cerebellum and cerebral cortex was studied. Agglutinins were coupled with active peroxidase by means of glutaraldehyde and their binding to neuronal glycoproteins was visualized using the Diaminobenzidine reaction. The results suggest the existence of glycoproteins metabolic cycles in neurons. The light and dark neurons of the classical microscopy differ in their glycoprotein content.
