Galactomannan was coupled to a protein carrier for the preparation of monoclonal antibodies. The monoclonal antibodies generated bound to galactomannans from different sources as well as to glucomannan and galactoglucomannan. One monoclonal antibody, BGM C6, was characterised and found to be specific for (1-->4)-beta-linked mannopyranosyl residues; it had a binding affinity estimated at 1x10(-6) M for the (1-->4)-beta-linked mannohexaose. BGM C6 was used in immunogold labelling studies to locate galactomannans in the endosperm walls of normal coconuts (Cocos nucifera L.) and those of the mutant makapuno at two different developmental stages. The pattern and intensity of antibody labelling varied for each type of coconut at the mature and immature stages, indicating differences in the galactomannan composition of the endosperm walls.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 September 2013.
All research outputs
of 11,287,788 outputs
Outputs from Planta
of 1,669 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 277,715 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Planta
of 41 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,287,788 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,669 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.0. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 277,715 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 41 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
