Lectins and their glycosylated receptors in a system of the tick-transmitted pathogen are the addressed topics which the minireview is dealing with. They participate in the reciprocal protein-saccharide interactions in the transmission of the causative agents of the tick-borne encephalitis and
Lyme borreliosis by the ticks. Functional significance of the tick tissue specific lectins as well the lectins/aggulutinis of the transmitted pathogens in molecular ecology of the tick borne diseases has been shown.
