    Abstract: The lectin from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA-IIL) is involved in host recognition and biofilm formation. Lectin not only displays an unusually high affinity for fucose but also binds to l-fucose, l-galactose and d-arabinose that differ only by the group at position 5 of the sugar ring....

    This article focuses on designing mutations of the PA-IIL lectin from Pseudomonas aeruginosa that lead to change in specificity. Following the previous results revealing the importance of the amino acid triad 22-23-24 (so-called specificity-binding loop), saturation in silico mutagenesis was...

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa galactose- and fucose-binding lectins (PA-IL and PA-IIL) contribute to the virulence of this pathogenic bacterium, which is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in cystic fibrosis patients. The crystal structure of PA-IIL in complex with fucose reveals a tetrameric...

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa produces several lectins, including the galactophilic PA-IL and the fucose- and mannose-binding PA-IIL. The great advantage of these two lectins is their stability in purified preparations. Following observations that pigeon egg white blocks Escherichia coli P-fimbriae and...

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa produces a fucose-binding lectin (PA-IIL) which strongly binds to human cells. This lectin was shown to be highly sensitive to inhibition by fucose-bearing human milk glycoproteins. Since the glycans of these glycoproteins mimic human cell receptors, they may function as...

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) can cause infections in compromised hosts by interacting with the glycocalyx of host epithelial cells. It binds to glycostructures on mucosal surfaces via two lectins, which are carbohydrate-binding proteins, named PA-IL and PA-IIL, and blocking this interaction is,...

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa antibiotic resistance has led to the search of natural compounds, which would competitively block its fucose>fructose/mannose-binding lectin (PA-IIL) that mediates its biofilm formation and adhesion to animal cells. Such compounds were found in human milk (HM) and avian...
