Comparison of galectin expression signatures in rejected and accepted murine corneal allografts.
Boston, United States. In Cornea, Jun 2015
Although in both accepted and rejected grafts, expression levels of the 5 lectins were upregulated compared with normal corneas, there were distinct differences in the expression levels of galectins-8 and 9 between accepted and rejected grafts, as both the Western blot and immunofluorescence staining revealed that galectin-8 is upregulated, whereas galectin-9 is downregulated in the rejected grafts compared with the accepted grafts.
Tumor galectinology: insights into the complex network of a family of endogenous lectins.

Furthermore, variants with distinct amino acid substitutions (galectin-8, Po66-CBP, PCTA-1, CocaI/II and galectin-9/ecalectin) and generation of multiple mRNA species, notably those coding for truncated galectin-8 and -9 versions with only one lectin site, justify to portray these two family members not as distinct individuals but as groups.
