Gene: LGALS9 (galectin 9) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LGALS9
Name: galectin 9
Description: Exhibits disaccharide binding activity and enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of apoptotic process; regulation of cytokine production; and regulation of leukocyte activation. Localizes to cytosol; extracellular space; and nucleus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
