The chief function of lectins in animals is to facilitate cell-cell contact. A lectin usually contains two or more binding sites for carbohydrate units; some lectins form oligomeric structures with multiple binding sites. The binding sites of lectins on the surface of one cell interact with arrays of carbohydrates displayed on the surface of another cell
