|Abstract||The cell surface glycoproteins of foetal human neurons and glial cells were isolated by affinity chromatography on Con A-Sepharose 4B. Dissociation of Con A from the matrix took place independent of buffer composition and the absence of lipids and/or detergents during chromatography. It was apparently related to the nature of glyco proteins. Pretreatment of Con A-Sepharose 4B with urea or guanidine minimized this problem. The elution of glycoproteins from the affinity matrix at 4-degrees-C, instead of the usual 25-degrees-C, reduced both Con A and glycolipid contamination in the eluate. Dot-enzyme-linked-lectin assay was carried out with horse radish peroxidase conjugated lectins and serotonin. It was observed that total glycoproteins contained high mannose, hybrid and a limited quantity of biantennary complex type oligosaccharide chains. O-linked oligosaccharides were also present. Desialylation and sodium chloride inhibited binding to serotonin and wheat germ agglutinin indicating the presence of sialic acid residues. Fucose was attached to the innermost core GlcNAc residue, as revealed by affinity towards pea lectin.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
