A method for detecting hyaluronan (HA)-binding proteins in transblot assays using biotinylated HA (BHA) is described. Some of the binding characteristics of a novel HA receptor termed RHAMM (Receptor for HA-Mediated Motility) are characterized using this assay. The method is also used to detect other HA-binding proteins in tissue homogenates. This method is semiquantitative, rapid, reproducible, sensitive and therefore of potential use in identifying the levels of HA-binding proteins in different cells and tissues.
