How its presence and functional significance was traced is recounted in the next paragraph. 4 Recent Developments The mentioned line of research was intended to elucidate the role of ceruloplasmin in maintaining the copper level and details on the metabolism of this transport protein for copper ions. As reagent to address these issues, a radioactive form of the glycoprotein was produced by tritiation. This reaction required desialylation of N-glycan chains (for structural details on these chains, please see Chap.

It led to the recognition of the ABO blood group system based on detecting and monitoring isoagglutination (for historical reviews, please see [7, 8]). e. A. Creite (a medial student in Göttingen in 1869), L. Landois (director of the physiological institute at the University of Greifswald in 1875) and K. Landsteiner, a Nobel Laureate in 1930, in 1900 working at the institute for pathological anatomy in Vienna [7, 8]. Their studies and the work on plant agglutinins (K. Landsteiner referred to them as “Normalantikörper (normal antibodies)”) 2 The History of Lectinology 17 revealed that the two protein classes also shared activity as precipitin, selectivity for erythrocytes from different species and inhibition of agglutination by haptens (the info box 2 in Chap.

In effect, this technical advance was instrumental to markedly increase the publication activity in this field, yielding a surge in the number of papers on new lectins and applications [17]. -J. Gabius to cross-linked agarose of the Charcot-Leyden crystal protein is of interest in this respect, because it indicates reactivity for sugars of this protein, whose typical hexagonal bipyramidal crystals were first described in post-mortem spleen of a leukemia patient in 1853 [18] and sputum of asthmatics in 1872 [19].
