This gene encodes a member of the collectin family of C-type lectins that possess collagen-like sequences and carbohydrate recognition domains. Collectins are secreted proteins that play important roles in the innate immune system by binding to carbohydrate antigens on microorganisms, facilitating their recognition and removal. The encoded protein binds to multiple sugars with a preference for fucose and mannose. Mutations in this gene are a cause of 3MC syndrome-2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for COLEC11 Gene
Lectin that plays a role in innate immunity, apoptosis and embryogenesis (PubMed:23954398, PubMed:25912189, PubMed:21258343). Calcium-dependent lectin that binds self and non-self glycoproteins presenting high mannose oligosaccharides with at least one terminal alpha-1,2-linked mannose epitope (PubMed:25912189). Primarily recognizes the terminal disaccharide of the glycan (PubMed:25912189). Also recognizes a subset of fucosylated glycans and lipopolysaccharides (PubMed:17179669, PubMed:25912189). Plays a role in innate immunity through its ability to bind non-self sugars presented by microorganisms and to activate the complement through the recruitment of MAPS1 (PubMed:20956340, PubMed:25912189). Also plays a role in apoptosis through its ability to bind in a calcium-independent manner the DNA present at the surface of apoptotic cells and to activate the complement in response to this binding (Probable). Finally, plays a role in development, probably serving as a guidance cue during the migration of neural crest cells and other cell types during embryogenesis (PubMed:21258343, PubMed:28301481).
