Ligand and pathogen specificity of the Atlantic salmon serum C-type lectin.

Abstract

BACKGROUND An Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) C-type lectin (SSL) binds to mannose and related sugars as well as to the surface of Aeromonas salmonicida. To characterize this lectin as a pathogen recognition receptor in salmon, aspects of its interaction with molecules and with intact pathogens were investigated. METHODS SSL was isolated using whole-yeast… (More)
