Abstract english

This article provides evidence for the presence of galectins, previously known as animal lectins, in a fungal species. The important implication of this study is that the galectin gene family could be much older than previously believed. Furthermore, the wide occurrence of galectins increases the possibility of understanding general functions of lectins.
