Briefly, each virus variant was mixed with 5-200 [micro]g/mL of colominic acid ([alpha]2,8-linked polysialic acid) and incubated for 1 h at 4[degrees]C.
335] possesses a higher affinity towards [alpha]2,8-linked sialic acids (colominic acid), which was evidenced by competence with colominic acid (Figure 1).
Hemolysis depends on the sialic acid-binding activity of limulin, because sialylated glycoconjugates, such as fetuin and the sialic acids N-acetyl neuraminic acid and colominic acid, inhibit hemolysis, and desialylation of the target cells renders them immune to cytolysis (1).
