A galactoside-binding lectin (Mr 29,000) has previously been identified in rat, mouse and human tissues. It is an abundant cell-surface component of inflammatory macrophages and their major non-integrin laminin-binding protein. It has also been found in the nucleus of other cell types. Here, we report the cloning and sequencing of a cDNA encoding the human galactoside-binding lectin from a breast carcinoma. The clone encodes a protein of 250 amino acids (aa) that is over 80% identical to its… CONTINUE READING
