BACKGROUND Lectins mediate cell-cell interactions by specifically recognizing oligosaccharide chains. Legume lectins serve as mediators for the symbiotic interactions between plants and nitrogen-fixing microorganisms, an important process in the nitrogen cycle. Lectins from the Viciae tribe have a high affinity for the fucosylated biantennary N-acetyllactosamine-type glycans which are to be found in the majority of N-glycosylproteins. While the structures of several lectins complexed with… CONTINUE READING
