A human macrophage calcium-dependent (C-type) lectin cDNA clone was obtained from a library derived from IL-2-treated peripheral blood monocytes. The cDNA cloning was based on the structural homology to hepatic asialoglycoprotein receptors. The nucleotide sequence of this cDNA clone was homologous to those of the galactose- and N-acetylgalactosamine-specific C-type macrophage lectins of rodents. In the putative carbohydrate recognition domain, deduced amino acid sequence revealed 60 and 63… CONTINUE READING
