Abstract

Metastasis is a crucial step in cancer pathogenicity and adds severity to the disease mainly because of the entry of cancer cell into a highly manipulative stage. Several studies including studies from our laboratory have indicated that galectin-3 plays a key role in metastasis. Galectin-3 binding protein (G3BP) is reported as a ligand for galectin-3. G3BP is a heavily Nglycosylated protein with a molecular mass of 90 kDa and it appears to mediate cell-cell adhesion via bridging galectin-3 molecules on adjacent tumor cells in a carbohydrate-dependent manner.
