Characterization of all members of a gene family established by gene divergence is essential to delineate distinct or overlapping expression profiles and functionalities. Their activity as potent modulators of diverse physiological processes directs interest to galectins (endogenous lectins with β-sandwich fold binding β-galactosides and peptide motifs), warranting their study with the long-term aim of a comprehensive analysis. The comparatively low level of complexity of the galectin network… CONTINUE READING
