What is lectin?

According to an old definition, "Lectins are multivalent carbohydrate-binding proteins or glycoproteins except for enzymes and antibodies".
Such a narrow definition, however, seems no longer relevant. - by J.H.


In the hope of bringing about a better understanding of the rapidly growing modern glycoscience, we have opened the "GlycoWord" Web site. It presents up-to-the-minute glycoscience-related keywords, selected by researchers in various fields of the science and interpreted intelligibly by specialists with expertise on each of the fields. The editorial staff hopes the "GlycoWord" site to be a guide to the modern glycoscience.
Your positive comments or views on this site will be welcome.
