Abstract

Previously, we reported autocrine involvement of Sarcophaga lectin in the development of Sarcophaga imaginal discs (Kawaguchi et al., Dev. Biol. 144, 86–93 (1991)). In this study, we purified Sarcophaga lectin binding protein from the membrane fraction of cultured embryonic cells of Sarcophaga to near homogeneity and raised a monoclonal antibody against it. Histochemical analysis using the monoclonal antibody revealed that this binding protein is distributed heterogeneously on the surface of leg imaginal discs. This binding protein was especially clearly localized in the central region of the basal side of leg discs which forms the junction between the leg and body, suggesting the participation of Sarcophaga lectin in morphogenesis of the basal region of the developing leg.
