Medium-sized human dorsal root ganglion cells and their central terminals in the upper dorsal horn exert preferential affinity for Ulex europaeus I lectin. Lectin binding of glycoconjugates outlines lamina III ( + IIi) and disappears after peripheral neurotomy, which renders it a useful marker to study transganglionic regulation in man.
