What is UniLectin ?
The UniLectin interactive database is dedicated to the classification and curation of lectins (with UniLectin3D module), the prediction of β-propeller lectins (with PropLec module) and the identification in proteomes of all lectin classes with LectomeXplore.
What are Lectins ?
Lectins are proteins with at least one non-catalytic domain that binds reversibly to a specific mono or oligosaccharide, and are not antibodies. Carbohydrate-binding has molecular and cellular consequences. Lectins play a range of roles in biological recognition involving cells, carbohydrates, and proteins. Lectins also mediate attachment and binding of bacteria and viruses to their intended targets.
