General information

  • Originally described as a tumor-secreted antigen, 90 K has stimulatory activity on natural killer cells and lymphokine-activated killer cells, and this activity appears to be mediated through the induction of cytokines. [1]
  • Galectin-1 induces cell aggregation through binding to 90K in a carbohydrate-dependent manner. [1]
