24623090 Japanese encephalitis virus infected cells through three virus receptors: DC-SIGN, DC-SIGNR and LSECtin.
22842622 LSECtin binds to soluble human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) GP120
22711492 The mobility of LSECtin-carbohydrate recognition domain increased after addition of Ca(2+) and N-acetylglucosamine.
22637699 The results indicate that LSECtin plays an important role in colorectal carcinoma liver metastasis and may be a promising new target for intervention in metastasis formation.
22156524 Axl,Tyro3,DC-SIGN and LSECtin are identified as new virus receptors for Lassa virus cell entry.
21257728 The human LSECtin have been shown to bind Ebola virus glycoprotein with equivalent affinities, and the GlcNAcbeta1-2Man disaccharide has been demonstrated to be an effective inhibitor of this interaction.
20237496 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20127679 The interaction between CD44 & LSECtin is dependent on protein-glycan recognition. CD44 is the 1st identified endogenous ligand of LSECtin, & similarly, LSECtin is a novel ligand of CD44.
19632227 Liver sinusoidal endothelial cell lectin, LSECtin, negatively regulates hepatic T-cell immune response.
19111020 LSECtin is expressed by liver myeloid cells, and its expression is dependent on the PU.1 transcription factor.
18697825 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18083206 Our results reveal important differences between Ebola virus and HIV-1 capture by DC-SIGN/R and LSECtin and hint towards different biological functions of these lectins.
18083206 LSECtin binds to soluble human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) GP120
17339424 LSECtin is a pathogen-associated molecular pattern receptor in human myeloid cells; results suggest that LSECtin participates in antigen uptake and internalization
14711836 results indicate that LSECtin is a novel member of a family of proteins comprising CD23, DC-SIGN, and DC-SIGNR and might function in vivo as a lectin receptor
