High impact information on Wisteria

  • CSPGs, visualized by labeling with Wisteria floribunda agglutinin, show a distribution complementary to that of AQP4, being absent or weekly expressed in AQP4-enriched areas [1].
  • Sulfated forms of u-PA were separated from non-sulfated forms by using the lectin Wisteria floribunda agglutinin [2].
  • Toward this end, triple-fluorescent labeling using antisera raised against PVB and CB as well as biotinylated Wisteria floribunda lectin for detection of PNN was combined with confocal microscopy [3].
  • In the macaque monkey, both cell populations were identified by their parvalbumin immunoreactivity and were studied for the presence of perineuronal nets using CSPG antibodies or lectin binding with Wisteria floribunda agglutinin [4].
  • To characterize the role of TN-R in the formation of perineuronal nets, we studied their postnatal development in wild-type mice and in a TN-R knock-out mutant by using the lectin Wisteria floribunda agglutinin and an antibody to nonspecified chondroitin sulphate proteoglycans as established cytochemical markers [5].

Anatomical context of Wisteria


Associations of Wisteria with chemical compounds

  • In the present study such perineuronal nets were demonstrated by using colloidal iron hydroxide staining for detection of polyanionic components and the plant lectins Vicia villosa agglutinin and Wisteria floribunda agglutinin with affinity for N-acetylgalactosamine [11].
  • A conjugate of the A1 peptide of cholera toxin and the lectin of Wisteria floribunda that activates the adenylate cyclase of intact cells [12].
  • Following electrophysiological characterization, neurons were filled with biocytin, processed for parvalbumin immunoreactivity and stained for perineuronal nets using Wisteria floribunda lectin [13].
  • Seeds of Wisteria floribunda contain several kinds of cysteine proteinase inhibitor (cystatin) [14].
  • The presence of glucose/mannose moieties was evidenced by the binding of all organisms to concanavalin A and Wisteria floribunda [15].

Gene context of Wisteria

  • To compare the basic organization of the raccoon septum with that in other mammals, parvalbumin (PARV) immunocytochemistry and Wisteria floribunda-agglutinin (WFA) lectin histochemistry also were used in double-staining experiments [16].
  • In both species, PI(P) was intense for calbindin, light for acetylcholinesterase (AChE), and very light for Wisteria floribunda agglutinin (WFA) histochemistry [6].
  • A 56K protein co-purified with bovine milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) proteins bound to Wisteria floribunda agglutinin (WFA) like most MFGM glycoproteins [17].
  • We studied the heterogeneous composition of a specific component of perineuronal nets, the signaling molecule Janusin (or Tenascin R), by means of a double immunofluorescence using lectin from Wisteria floribunda as a general marker for perineuronal nets and an antibody against Janusin [18].
  • Glial fibrillary acidic protein showed a complementary distribution pattern to perineuronal nets, visualized with Wisteria floribunda agglutinin [19].
