|Function||Galactose-specific lectin which binds IgE. May mediate with the alpha-3, beta-1 integrin the stimulation by CSPG4 of endothelial cells migration. Together with DMBT1, required for terminal differentiation of columnar epithelial cells during early embryogenesis (By similarity). In the nucleus: acts as a pre-mRNA splicing factor. Involved in acute inflammatory responses including neutrophil activation and adhesion, chemoattraction of monocytes macrophages, opsonization of apoptotic neutrophils, and activation of mast cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Secreted. Note=Secreted by a non-classical secretory pathway and associates with the cell surface|
|Tissue Location||A major expression is found in the colonic epithelium. It is also abundant in the activated macrophages Expressed in fetal membranes.|

This gene encodes a member of the galectin family ofcarbohydrate binding proteins. Members of this protein family havean affinity for beta-galactosides. The encoded protein ischaracterized by an N-terminal proline-rich tandem repeat domainand a single C-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain. Thisprotein can self-associate through the N-terminal domain allowingit to bind to multivalent saccharide ligands. This proteinlocalizes to the extracellular matrix, the cytoplasm and thenucleus. This protein plays a role in numerous cellular functionsincluding apoptosis, innate immunity, cell adhesion and T-cellregulation. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcriptvariants.
