High impact information on lectin


Biological context of lectin

  • The worm genome encodes various proteins which might have this recognition function, such as numerous proteins containing C-type lectin domains [5].
  • In the present study, the role of the glycosylation of Pgp was studied using a lectin specific for the alpha-mannosyl residues ( Lens culinaris agglutinin, LCA) [6].

Associations of lectin with chemical compounds

  • Highly significant reversion (up to 50%) in the resistance to thiabendazole of eggs pre-treated with the lectin was obtained [6].
