Official Full Name
collectin sub-family member 11
This gene encodes a member of the collectin family of C-type lectins that possess collagen-like sequences and;carbohydrate recognition domains. Collectins are secreted proteins that play important roles in the innate immune;system by binding to carbohydrate antigens on microorganisms, facilitating their recognition and removal. The encoded;protein binds to multiple sugars with a preference for fucose and mannose. Mutations in this gene are a cause of 3MC;syndrome-2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.
