|Abstract||In order to identify the complementary glycoproteins (receptors) that are recognized in bovine brain stem by endogenous 14 kDa galactose-binding lectin (BBL), probable glycoproteins were first selected by affinity chromatography of soluble tissue glycoproteins on Rinicus communis agglutinin (RCB) - Sepharose since this lectin had similar sugar specificity to the endogenous,lectin. From Western blot of RCA-binding glycoproteins, the lectin, as its peroxidase conjugate sugar-specifically recognized chiefly an 84 kDa glycoprotein subunit and a few minor subunits. On alkaline pH PAGE of the RCA-binding brain stem glycoproteins, a prominent fast moving protein was separated which, on electroelution and dot blotting, was also recognized by BBL sugar-specifically. This glycoprotein was composed of 55 kDa and 58 kDa subunits as seen by SDS-PAGE and was also immunologically distinct from the 84 kDa subunit. Qualitative test on dot blots of the electroeluted glycoproteins using peroxidase conjugates of plant lectins of varying specificities as well as the human serum anti-alpha-galactoside antibody indicated differences in carbohydrate composition between the 84 kDa subunit and the alkaline; PAGE fast moving glycoprotein. Membrane-bound brain stem glycoproteins were not recognized by BBL.|

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 (NDL India) pilot 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. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, 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. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India 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 respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
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 (NDL India) pilot project.
