Lectins are proteins or glycoproteins from plants, animals or microorganisms, which typically bind specifically to sugar residues, e.g., located in cell walls or membranes. This reaction might change the physiology of the cell wall and influences the metabolism inside the cell. Some lectins of plants stimulate the immune system by unspecific activation of T-cells or influence cell division; others cause agglutination of cells (e.g., erythrocytes) and are therefore from therapeutic interest.
