The structures of the Erythrina corallodendron lectin (EcorL) and of its complexes with galactose, N-acetylgalactosamine, lactose and N-acetyllactosamine were determined at a resolution of 1.9 to 1.95 A. The final R-values of the five models are in the range 0.169 to 0.181. The unusual, non-canonical, dimer interface of EcorL is made of beta-strands from the two monomers, which face one another in a "hand-shake" mode. The galactose molecule in the primary binding site is bound in an identical… CONTINUE READING
