Influence of the conjugation method of MAL-I and -II lectins on the staining intensities in duck small intestines. Biotinylated MAL-I (A) and MAL-II (a) both resulted in epithelial cell binding (black arrows), but MAL-II (a) was additionally staining the goblet cells (red arrow). For both lectins binding was abolished by sialidase treatment of the sections (B, b). Digoxigenin labelled MAL-I (C) and MAL-II (c) failed to bind to the same tissues.
