Abstract

Lectins are carbohydrate binding proteins with important roles in many biological processes such as adhesion. Here we have identified 11 potential lectins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv genome, using a comprehensive bioinformatics analysis, which will provide helpful clues in molecular mapping of pathogenesis and perhaps also serve as potential drug targets.
