Abstract

The term "galectins" was given in 1994 to a family of animal lectins that bind to β-galactosides and contain comparable sequences of amino acids in their genes and proteins [1]. At that time, there were just four identified members, but now 15 members have been described in mammals, with similar proteins found in various animal species, as well as in insects and plants.
