    • Abstract:
      The structures of MornigaM and the MornigaM–mannose complex have been determined at 1.8 Å and 2.0 Å resolution, respectively. Both structures adopt the typical β-prism motif found in other jacalin-related lectins and their tetrameric assembly closely resembles that of jacalin. The carbohydrate-binding cavity of MornigaM readily binds mannose. No major structural rearrangements can be observed in MornigaM upon binding of mannose. These results allow corroboration of the structure–function relationships within the small group of Moraceae lectins. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
