Description:

Galectin-9 is a unique member of this family of non-classically secreted, β-galactoside-binding proteins, with a 39kDa tandem-repeat type galectin, with two carbohydrate-recognition domains. It was first identified as an eosinophil chemoattractant and activation factor and first cloned from tumor tissues of Hodgkin’s disease. Subsequent studies revealed that galectin-9, similar to other galectins, modulates a variety of biological functions including cell aggregation and adhesion, as well as apoptosis of tumor cells. Galectin-9 has recently been shown to have an anti-proliferative effect on cancer cells. In many solid cancers, the loss of galectin-9 expression is closely associated with metastatic progression, and treatment with recombinant galectin-9 prevents metastatic spread in various preclinical cancer models.
