Expression of lectin binding in cutaneous papillomas of animals

H. E. Whiteley, J. P. Sundberg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A group of spontaneously occurring animal papillomas which were negative or positive for papillomavirus group-specific antigen were examined with a battery of biotinylated lectins including Con A, WGA, succinylated-WGA, PNA and UEA-I. Canine papillomas, equine papillomas, white-tailed deer fibromas, mule deer fibromas, and bovine fibropapillomas were examined. Each lectin had a specific staining pattern. No obvious differences in staining patterns between normal skin, viral antigen-positive and -negative neoplasms were identified. This may be due to the well-differentiated and organized nature of these tumours.
