LGALS2 is a glycoprotein. It contains a galectin domain.
POST-TRANSCRIPTIONAL MODIFICATION: No information
POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATION: No.information.
|LIGANDS AND MOLECULES ASSOCIATED WITH LGALS2: No information.|
|The protein encoded by LGALS2 is a soluble β-galactoside binding lectin. The encoded protein is found as a homodimer and can bind to lymphotoxin-α. A single nucleotide polymorphisms in an intron of this gene can alter the transcriptional level of the protein with a resultant increased risk of myocardial infarction.|
