Non-Immunological High-Affinity Interactions Used for Labelling

  • Gareth Griffiths


The word lectin is used to describe a heterogeneous group of proteins from a wide variety of biological sources that bind specific sugar molecules, especially when the latter are covalently bound to protein or lipid. Most of the well known lectins are of plant origin. Although the affinities of these proteins for their ligands are relatively high they invariably show a range of specificities and affinities for different sugar compounds (see Table 1).
