CLEC10A Molecule Synonym Name
CLEC10A Molecule Background
C-type lectin domain family 10 member A (CLEC10A) is also known as C-type lectin superfamily member 14 (CLECSF14), Macrophage lectin 2, CD antigen CD301. CLEC10A / CD301 is a unique calcium-type (C-type) lectin, which expressed on Dendritic cells (DCs). CLEC10A / CD301 probable role in regulating adaptive and innate immune responses. CLEC10A / CD301 binds in a calcium-dependent manner to terminal galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc), linked to serine or threonine. There are two homologues in mice: MGL1 and MGL2 (CD301a and CD301b).
