Abstract

Plant lectins are easily available, fairly stable and suitable for many kinds of chemical modification. Thus, they have become important tools in glycosciences. In the present review, it is attempted to throw light upon aspects of lectinology that deal with their natural occurrence, biosynthesis, structure, binding specificities and hypotheses about their biological functions.
