galectin-3


galectin-3
(= formerly IgE binding protein, Mac-2; e-BP)
One of a family of b -galactoside binding proteins (30 kD) that has growth-regulatory and immunomodulatory properties. Galectin-1 mediates cell-cell and cell-substratum adhesion. Recombinant galectin-1 will induce apoptosis in T-cells. Occurs as a homodimer which is cell-surface associated.
