Pathogen Adherence to Carbohydrate DB
This database provides the information on pathogens (e.g. bacteria, fungus, toxin and virus) adhering to carbohydrates expressed on the cell surface of host animals or plants. Many pathogens have been reported to recognize the sugar moieties of host cells as a first step of bacterial adhesion and infection. We have also collected the data of diseases caused by bacterial infections to host tissues.
This database will give you easy access to the data on each pathogen and its receptor glycans or proteins.
We hope that this database could be of help in your study and serve as a bridge for two areas of study, glycoscience and infectious diseases.
