Gene: Lgals9 (lectin, galactose binding, soluble 9) Mus musculus
Symbol: Lgals9
Name: lectin, galactose binding, soluble 9
Description: Exhibits several functions, including carbohydrate binding activity; galactoside binding activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cytokine production; regulation of defense response; and regulation of leukocyte activation. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; hemolymphoid system; intestine; liver; and metanephros. Orthologous to several human genes including LGALS9 (galectin 9); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-butoxyethanol; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AA407335; AI194909; AI265545; gal-9; galectin-9; lectin, galactose binding, soluble 5; LGALS35; Lgals5; null
