Description
  • Abstract: Galectins have emerged as potent immunoregulatory molecules that control chronic inflammation through distinct mechanisms. Galectin-8 (Gal-8), a tandem-repeat type galectin with unique preference for α2,3-sialylated glycans, is ubiquitously expressed, but little is known about its role in T cell differentiation. Here, we report that Gal-8 promotes the polyclonal differentiation of primar... read more
