TitleNeutralizing galectins with polyrotaxanes Contact
»Mary O'Reilly DescriptionThis illustration was prepared for a lecture on multivalency, and describes how pseudopolyrotaxane with pendant carbohydrate ligands can cross-link and aggregate galectin-1 while occupying its binding site, thus neutralizing a lectin that can play a role in promoting cancer metastasis.
