  Detection of Carbohydrate-Protein Interactions with Picomolar Sensitivity

The Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, the Walther-Meissner-Institute in Garching and the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces have joined forces to study carbohydrate-protein binding interactions. K. Gruber et al. examined binding of mannosides and the protein cyanovirin-N, which binds and blocks the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). They were able to demonstrate picomolar sensitivity in their assay.
