Immulectin-3 (IML-3) is a C-type lectin from the tobacco hornworm Manduca sexta that contains a motif (NWGV) similar to the BH1 motif (NWGR) of the mammalian galectin-3. IML-3 is synthesized in fat body and secreted into hemolymph, but can be translocated into hemocytes. In this study, we showed that IML-3 was predominantly localized to the nucleus of… CONTINUE READING
