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.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
