Sialic-acid-binding immunoglobulin-like lectins (Siglecs) are members of the Ig superfamily that bind sialic acids in different linkages in a wide variety of glycoconjugates. These membrane receptors are expressed in a highly specific manner, predominantly within the haematopoietic system. The CD33-related Siglecs represent a distinct subgroup that is… CONTINUE READING
