Priscila Marcelino Dos Santos SilvaLuana Cassandra Breitenbach Barroso Coelho

Abstract

Carbohydrate-binding proteins, also known as lectins, are valuable tools for biotechnology, including pharmacological uses. Mannose lectins obtained from plant and animal sources are applied to protection and characterization of autoimmune diseases as well as defense proteins against pa...read more
