    In this article, we propose a simple and sensitive fluorescent method for determining the neuraminidase specificity using BODIPY-labeled trisaccharides as substrates.

    The overexpression of lectins by malignant cells was applied for in vitro targeting of liposomes equipped with a saccharide vector and loaded in the lipid phase with a lipid derivative of anticancer agent sarcolysine. The lectin specificity of human leukemia HL-60 and human lung adenocarcinoma ACL cells was revealed by tests with fluorescein-labeled sugar probes. With the help of fluorescent lipid dye it was shown that active saccharide ligands increased the level of the vectored liposome binding to malignant cells by 50-80% as compared to liposomes without vector or with inactive one. The degree of liposome/cell membrane fusion was monitored fluorometrically and was shown to be complete and independent of the vectors. The targeted drug-loaded liposomes had the cytotoxic activity 2-4 times higher as compared to the vector-free ones.

    Several types of polymeric glycoconjugates, N-substituted polyacrylamides, have been synthesized by the reaction of activated polymers with omega-aminoalkylglycosides: (i) (carbohydrate-spacer)n-polyacrylamide, 'pseudopolysaccharides'; (ii) (carbohydrate-spacer)n-phosphatidylethanolaminem-polyacrylamide, neoglycolipids, derivatives of phosphatidylethanolamine; (iii) (carbohydrate-spacer)n-biotin-polyacrylamide, biotinylated probes; (iv) (carbohydrate-spacer)n-polyacrylamide-(macroporous glass), affinity sorbents based on macroporous glass, covalently coated with polyacrylamide. An almost quantitative yield in the conjunction reaction makes it possible to insert in the conjugate a predetermined quantity of the ligand(s). Pseudopolysaccharides proved to be a suitable form of antigen for activation of polystyrene and poly(vinyl chloride) plates (ELISA) and nitrocellulose membranes (dot blot), being advantageous over traditional neoglycoproteins. Polyvalent glycolipids insert well in biological membranes: their physical properties, particularly solubility, can be changed in a desired direction. Biotinylated derivatives were used as probes for detection and analysis of lectins.
