Fluorescein-labeled polypeptide hormones, hormone analogons and fragments were selectively bound by the midbody, which bound neither con-A, nor the fluorescent stain in itself. This experimental observation suggests an accumulation in the midbody region of non-glycosilated hormone receptors, apparently to present a receptor pool for the separating daughter cells.
