The Role of Galectins as Modulators of Metabolism and Inflammation
Galectins are β-galcotosid-binding lectins. The function of galectins varies with their tissue-specific and subcellular location, and their binding to carbohydrates makes them key players in severalExpand

Novel mannose binding natterin‐like protein in the skin mucus of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)
Abstract This study presents the first report of purification of natterin‐like protein (Nlp) in a non‐venomous fish. The peptide identities of purified cod Nlp were confirmed through LC‐MSMS andExpand

Functional Aspects of Fish Mucosal Lectins—Interaction with Non-Self
Mucosal surfaces are of key importance in protecting animals against external threats including pathogens. In the mucosal surfaces, host molecules interact with non-self to prevent infection andExpand

Proteomic and structural differences in lumpfish skin among the dorsal, caudal and ventral regions
Fish skin is a vital organ that serves a multitude of functions including mechanical protection, homeostasis, osmoregulation and protection against diseases. The expression of skin proteins changesExpand
A Truncated Galectin-3 Isolated from Skin Mucus of Atlantic Salmon Salmo salar Binds to and Modulates the Proteome of the Gram-Negative Bacteria Moritella viscosa
The mucus of fish skin plays a vital role in innate immune defense. Some mucus proteins have the potential to incapacitate pathogens and/or inhibit their passage through the skin. In this study theExpand
