  • The literature contains several reviews on lectins in general, covering mainly those from plants and invertebrates. However, the sialic acid binding lectins have not been reviewed so far. Considering the importance of sialic acids in cell sociology, lectins which specifically recognize terminal sialic acid residues are potentially useful as analytical tools in studying the biological functions of sialoglycoconjugates. These lectins, along with monoclonal antibodies raised against… CONTINUE READING
