Descriptor colectinas
Scope note: Lectinas de tipo C cuyo objetivo son las estructuras de carbohidratos que se encuentran en patógenos invasores. La unión de las colectinas a microorganismos da lugar a su aglutinación y aumento del aclaramiento. Las colectinas forman trímeros que pueden agruparse para formar grandes oligómeros. Cada cadena polipeptídica de colectina contiene cuatro regiones: una relativamente corta región N-terminal, una región similar a colágeno, una región alfa-hélice coiled-coil y una región de unión a carbohidrato.

Scope note: A class of C-type lectins that target the carbohydrate structures found on invading pathogens. Binding of collectins to microorganisms results in their agglutination and enhanced clearance. Collectins form trimers that may assemble into larger oligomers. Each collectin polypeptide chain consists of four regions: a relatively short N-terminal region, a collagen-like region, an alpha-helical coiled-coil region, and carbohydrate-binding region.
