What is UniLectin ?
The UniLectin interactive database provides curated information on carbohydrate-binding proteins called lectins. Lectins are grouped into families based on multiple structures binding different carbohydrates.
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.
How many lectins and structures ?
1699 structures, 405 lectins, 752 references
