  • FunctionGalactose-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.
  • Tissue specificityA major expression is found in the colonic epithelium. It is also abundant in the activated macrophages.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 galectin domain.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasmic in adenomas and carcinomas. May be secreted by a non-classical secretory pathway and associate with the cell surface.
