Description
Abstract Galectin-1 (gal-1), a member of the family of ?-galactoside binding proteins,
participates in several biological processes such as immunomodulation, cell adhesion,
regulation of cell growth and apoptosis. The aim of this study was to investigate whether gal-
1 interferes with the Fas (Apo-1/CD95)-associated apoptosis cascade in the T-cell lines
Jurkat and MOLT-4. Gal-1 and an Apo-1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) induced DNA-
fragmentation in Jurkat T-cells whereas MOLT-4 cells were resistant. Gal-1 stimulated ...
