Cell-surface carbohydrate recognition by animal and viral lectins.

Author information

  • 1Department of Structural Biology, Stanford University School of Medicine, CA 94305, USA.


Many animal and viral lectins are specific for monosaccharides found in particular glycosidic linkages, or for larger oligosaccharide structures. Recent crystal structures of complexes between these proteins and receptor fragments have provided insights into the recognition of linkage isomers and oligosaccharide conformation.
