Internalization of a sunflower mannose-binding lectin into phytopathogenic fungal cells induces cytotoxicity.


Lectins are carbohydrate-affinity proteins with the ability to recognize and reversibly bind specific glycoconjugates. We have previously isolated a bioactive sunflower mannose-binding lectin belonging to the jacalin-related family called Helja. Despite of the significant number of plant lectins described in the literature, only a small group exhibits… (More)
