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.
What is UniLectin ?
The UniLectin platform is dedicated to the classification, curation and prediction of lectins.
