I am performing biochemistry studies on protein separation. I was curious to 
know the difference between the three types of lectins, viz. Con A, WGA and 
JAC and how each one of them can be used for protein separation. 

In particular, I am curious to know how lectin can be used to separate 
glycoprotein and nonglycoproteins. I am aware that it can be done by some type 
of chromatography, although I am not too sure about that. Can I get some help 
regarding this. Thank you very much.
