Gene : LGALS2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? galectin 2 Cytological Location  22q13.1
Brief Description  galectin 2
Description  The protein encoded by this gene is a soluble beta-galactoside binding lectin. The encoded protein is found as a homodimer and can bind to lymphotoxin-alpha. A single nucleotide polymorphism in an intron of this gene can alter the transcriptional level of the protein, with a resultant increased risk of myocardial infarction. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
