26891020 The integrative analysis of galectins(Gal-1, -3, -4, -9) discriminated IBD from other intestinal inflammatory conditions and could be used as potential mucosal biomarker
26885508 Galectin-1 was undetectable in normal and ulcerative colitis colonic epithelium, while galectin-2, galectin-3, and galectin-4 were strongly expressed.
26869635 Report elevated galectin-3 levels in pulmonary arterial hypertension.
26781273 Gal-3 likely participates in mechanisms of aldosterone-mediated myocardial damage in a heart failure murine model with cardiac hyperaldosteronism.
26760037 binding of recombinant Gal-3 to the RPE cell surface and inhibitory effects on RPE attachment and spreading largely dependent on interaction with Mgat5 modified N-glycans
26722123 Circulating Gal-3 was associated with abdominal adiposity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension in cross-sectional analyses, but Gal-3 did not predict incident cardiometabolic disease after adjusting for cardiometabolic risk factors.
26718452 following successful knockdown of galecin-3 expression in Eca109 cells, the cell proliferation, migration and invasion were reduced, while the apoptosis was enhanced.
26708131 This study provides evidence for a prognostic clinical potential of the combined study of GAL-3 and CRIP-1 in endometrial cancer
26663797 Serum galectin-3 is a biomarker of fibrosis in cirrhosis and toxic hepatitis, which reflects the stage of liver damage.
26589797 galectin-1 and -3 are expressed by the human cervical and vaginal epithelial cells and act as pathogen-recognition receptors for the ceramide phosphoinositol glycan core (CPI-GC) of the dominant surface protozoan lipophosphoglycan.
