26885508 Galectin-1 was undetectable in normal and ulcerative colitis colonic epithelium, while galectin-2, galectin-3, and galectin-4 were strongly expressed.
26045830 PPARG rs1152002, AGTR1 rs5186, CXCL16 rs3744700 and LGALS2 rs7291467 polymorphisms may be closely related to the development of coronary heart disease
25953264 Lower LGALS2 gene expression is associated with acute myeloid leukemia.
25884209 Galectin-2 binding to different circulating human monocyte subsets depends on monocyte surface expression levels of CD14. It skews human macrophages to a M1-like proinflammatory phenotype.
25707742 Data suggest that expression of galectin 2 and galectin 2 mRNA is down-regulated in placental extravillous trophoblast and decidua in women with pre-eclampsia as compared to women with normal term pregnancy.
24984218 Gal-1, 2, and 3 levels were high in maintenance hemodialysis patients. Kidney transplantation improved gal-1, 2, and 3 levels.
24384681 The increased circulation of galectins -2, -4 and -8 in cancer patients contributes substantially to the increased circulation of G-CSF, IL-6 and MCP-1 by interaction with the blood vascular endothelium
23581621 Cys57Met (single-site) mutant and its monoPEGylated derivative can markedly reduce binding of galectin-2 to physiological binding sites
22310064 LTA and LGALS2 polymorphisms affect the subclinical phenotype of the coronary artery, which predisposes to the incidence of myocardial infarction.
22015694 low expression of galectin-2 was significantly associated with lymph node metastasis and advanced clinical stage in patients with gastric cancer
