Lectins are ubiquitous proteins, which exhibit a specific and reversible sugar-binding activity. They react with glycosylated macromolecules and cells and may coaggragate them and lead to their lysis or alterations. Various lectin biological effects are well known, but their basic biological function is considered as yet unknown. In the present review, an experimental evidence and theoretical considerations are forwarded for supporting our suggestion that the general basic lectin or lectinoid… CONTINUE READING
