Left, female sand fly midgut lysates separated by sodium dodecyl sulfate–polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and blotted onto nitrocellulose membranes. Blots were incubated with biotinylated Helix pomatia agglutinin (HPA) that detects O-glycosylated proteins. Lane 1, molecular mass markers; lanes 2 and 3, Phlebotomus sergenti; lanes 4 and 5, P. arabicus; +, preincubation of lectin with 250 mmol/L N-acetyl-d-galactosamine; –, no preincubation. Right, reaction of fluorescein-conjugated HPA with P.
