Gene: Lgals3 (galectin 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Lgals3
Name: galectin 3
RGD ID: 69356
Description: Exhibits several functions, including Fc-gamma receptor I complex binding activity; IgE binding activity; and advanced glycation end-product receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell proliferation in bone marrow; positive regulation of angiogenesis; and positive regulation of serotonin secretion. Localizes to several cellular components, including cell surface; extracellular space; and nucleus. Biomarker of several diseases, including acute kidney failure; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; brain ischemia; congestive heart failure; and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma. Orthologous to human LGALS3 (galectin 3); PARTICIPATES IN Hedgehog signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
