Bt as a lectin

".......engineered with Bt toxin, now understood to be a form of lectin"
Can anyone confirm or deny this statement, explain what it means, and give some reference?
If true, it seems to have some significance, linking Dr Pusztai's research on GE potatoes with all the crops engineered with the Bt toxin.
Any comments?
