Abstract

The opportunistic human pathogen Psuedomonas aeruginosa produces two lectins in close association with virulence factors: PA-IL adn PA-IIL, which bind to galactose- and fucose/mannose-containing glycoconjugates, respectively. We review here the structural aspects of these lectins relative to their putative roles in host recognition, cell surface adhesion and biofilm formation.
