Abstract

This article is a resume’ of our studies on complex carbohydrates carried out at the Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry. Some of the work may not be directly related to conventional immunochemistry, but may be of interest to most of the attendants of this symposium. In the past five years, we carried out investigations on membrane glycoproteins, isolation and characterization of lectins and lectin-like substances from various plant and animal sources, proteins exhibiting biological activity from plant sources traditionally used in medical treatment, and cell surface proteins from certain specialized cells or cancer cells. These topics will be presented in the order mentioned.
