There is Carbbank - which is not strictly on the internet, but can be 
downloaded (70 MB when inflated) which allows searching by keyword, 
author, structure, etc. However, it is cumbersome to use. (Available by 
FTP from NCBI FTP site.)

* +  alpha2-macroglobulin (kininogen) (human)             YES
* +? immunoglobulin A1 (human)                            YES
* +? immunoglobulin A2 (human)                            Perhaps
* -  alpha1-antitrypsin (human)                           Don't think so
* -  alpha1-acid glycoprotein (orosmucoid) (bovine)       Don't know
* +  alpha2-HS glycoprotein (human)                       YES
* +  chymotrypsinogen A (bovine)                          Don't know
* -  alpha-casein (bovine)                                Think so
>(+ means that my lectin binds to the protein and - no binding).
