Squalen Bulletin of Marine and Fisheries Postharvest and Biotechnology
ISSN : 20895690     EISSN : 24069272     DOI : -
Squalen publishes original and innovative research to provide readers with the latest research, knowledge, emerging technologies, postharvest, processing and preservation, food safety and environment, biotechnology and bio-discovery of marine and fisheries. The key focus of the research should be on marine and fishery and the manuscript should include a fundamental discussion of the research findings and their significance. Manuscripts that simply report data without providing a detailed interpretation of the results are unlikely to be accepted for publication in the journal.

Abstract

Lectins (hemagglutinins), or carbohydrate-binding proteins, are ubiquitous in nature and play important roles in many biological processes. They bind mono- and oligosaccharides reversibly with high specificity, but are devoid of catalytic activity, and in contrast to antibodies, are not products of an immune response. The erythrocyte agglutination or hemagglutination activity of lectins is a major attribute of these proteins and is used routinely for their detection and characterization. Due to their biochemical and biological properties, lectins attract a great deal of attention in the fields of medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry, and glycobiology. Lectins have been isolated and characterized from marine algae. Many of algal lectins generally have common characteristics of low molecular weight, no divalent cations requirements for their activity, and have an affinity for glycoproteins but not for monosaccharides. These properties imply that they may possess molecular structures and carbohydrate-binding specificities distinct from known lectins from other sources. Recent investigations revealed that algal lectins have the strict binding specificity to some definite oligosaccharide structures and are grouped into several types on the basis of oligosaccharide-binding specificity. Thus, marine algae are promising sources of novel lectin molecules for basic research and application. In spite of the progress made in biochemical characterization of algal lectins, additional information are still needed for a more comprehensive understanding of their molecular structures and possible biological functions for the future applications.
