As far back as early Greek times, the lily has ranked “next ... [Published Redlands Daily Facts - Jul 15 2014]


"Traditionally, to provide a quantitative assessment of the glycan structure of a glycoprotein, lectin array platforms required the use of either a reliable glycoprotein specific antibody or direct conjugation of a fluorescent dye to the glycoprotein. These antibody-based detection strategies are limited by the fact that antibody recognition of a given glycoprotein or glycoenzyme may be blocked or reduced depending on the type of glycan structure linked to the protein or enzyme, thereby allowing recognition of only a subset of the total glycoprotein pool and not the range of potential glycan structures. Antibody-based recognition may also require multiple binding and wash steps, which can add time and complexity to an analysis. While these problems can be circumvented using direct labeling of the glycoprotein, direct labeling remains limited to pure preparations of material, since the labeling techniques do not discriminate among proteins. Accordingly, direct labeling cannot be used for 'dirty' or in-process samples. The utility of currently available methods for glycan analysis may be further limited because large quantities of highly purified materials may not readily be available from in-process test samples. Furthermore, purified material may only represent a subset of the initial glycoform population because the purification process is typically selective for certain glycan structures."
The advisory goes on to say, "One to two berries or leaves eaten by a child will not result in serious harm." But it recommends, "As a precaution when hanging mistletoe in your home, place it in a piece of netting or a plastic sandwich bag."
