Extensive presence of SAα2,6-Gal (SNA lectin) and SAα2,3-Gal (MAA II lectin) receptors in the major porcine organs examined. Composite confocal images, along with corresponding haematoxylin and eosin tissue sections (with the exception of skeletal muscle) for orientation, show distribution of SAα2,6-Gal receptors (green) and SAα2,3-Gal receptors (red) with nuclear staining (blue). Cross section and longitudinal section of skeletal muscle are shown. 1. hepatic sinusoid, 2. portal triad, 3. meninx, 4. neuron, 5. white pulp, 6. red pulp, 7. capsule, 8. glomerulus, 9. renal tubule, 10. capillary, 11. basement membrane.
