Summary
[Homo sapiens] LGALS4 (Gal-4), expressed in the intestinal tract, recognizes and kills human blood group antigen-expressing Escherichia coli while failing to alter the viability of other E. coli strains or other Gram-negative or Gram-positive organisms.
[Homo sapiens] LGALS4 is part of the galectin family of proteins that have emerged as autonomous bacteria-killing agents, pointing to a principal role of these proteins in innate immunity.
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene does not have any Entrez summary - the following is the summary from its human ortholog ENSG00000171747:
The galectins are a family of beta-galactoside-binding proteins implicated in modulating cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. The expression of this gene is restricted to small intestine, colon, and rectum, and it is underexpressed in colorectal cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
