Summaries for LGALS3BP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LGALS3BP Gene

  • The galectins are a family of beta-galactoside-binding proteins implicated in modulating cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. LGALS3BP has been found elevated in the serum of patients with cancer and in those infected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It appears to be implicated in immune response associated with natural killer (NK) and lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cell cytotoxicity. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization the full length 90K cDNA has been localized to chromosome 17q25. The native protein binds specifically to a human macrophage-associated lectin known as Mac-2 and also binds galectin 1. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimers and homomultimers. The multimers form ring-like structures with a diameter of 30-40 nm. Binds LGALS1 and LGALS3. Binds ITGB1, COL4A1, COL5A1, COL6A1, FN1 and NID. Interacts with the gamma-tubulin ring complex (gamma-TuRC), composed of gamma-tubulin, TUBGCP2, TUBGCP3, TUBGCP4, TUBGCP5 and TUBGCP6 (PubMed:29162697). The unglycosylated form interacts with PDE4DIP isoform 13/MMG8/SMYLE; this interaction may connect a pericentrosomal complex, made of AKAP9, CDK5RAP2, EB1/MAPRE1 and PDE4DIP, to the gamma-tubulin ring complex (gamma-TuRC) to promote microtubule assembly and acetylation (PubMed:29162697).
