This comprehensive yet concise guide to animal lectins, covers all sources from unicellular protozoa and slime moulds through invertebrates to mammals and birds, and provides essential information to the widest possible readership. The last few years have seen an explosion of interest and research in animal lectins, and this book, which is divided into two parts, provides a compendium of galectins, collectins, selectins, pentraxins and other carbohydrate-binding proteins from throughout the animal kingdom. The first part introduces animal lectins on both phylogenetic and structural bases and outlines their key biomedical applications. The second, and major part, is a
