Membranes with immobilized glycoconjugate polymers were prepared and lectin adsorption was evaluated. Glycoconjugate polymers having the carbohydrates, lactose, and mannose, the amino groups of the reaction point, and a fluorescence label were synthesized, while cellulose membranes were carboxymethylated. The content of the carboxyl group was evaluated by titration. Subsequently, the glycoconjugate polymers were immobilized on the cellulose membranes by amide linkages formed by condensation reaction. Analysis of the luminescence of the fluorescence labels revealed that the glycoconjugate polymers had been immobilized on the cellulose membranes. Examination of lectin adsorption by the glycoconjugate polymer on the membrane revealed that the membrane with the immobilized mannose-having polymer adsorbed 53% of the applied ConA and the membrane with the immobilized lactose-having polymer adsorbed 83% of the applied RCA120. The membrane with immobilized glycoconjugate polymers selectively adsorbed each lectin. In addition, membranes with different types of immobilized glycoconjugate polymers were used in stacks, and in this case, the membranes selectively adsorbed lectin. Thus, membranes with immobilized glycoconjugate polymers efficiently and easily purify lectin.
