   We have generated antibodies against the following Pseudomonas aeruginosa
   epitope :
   where ManNAcAmA = 3-acetaminido-2-acetaminido-2,3-deoxy-D-mannuronic acid
   and D-Man(NAc)2A = 2,3-diacetamido-2,3,-dideoxy-D-mannuronic acid.
   Does anybody know a lectin that specifically recognizes this structure
   and is able to discriminate between the FucNAc-(a1-> and the FucNAc-(B1->
   Replies preferably by e-mail to jgpletin at vub.ac.be. Thanks in advance.
