In The Dietary Cure for Acne Dr. Cordain discusses how lectins can inhibit the activity of certain zinc dependent enzymes necessary for the proper breakdown and ‘sloughing off’ of skin cells; a process known as exocytosis.

Similar to the acne story, the lectins present on damaged intestinal cells were shown to prevent the normal process of exocytosis of certain mucus cells needed to keep intestinal cells healthy.
