human CLEC4M protein

from human; cell-surface receptors that mediate cell-cell interactions within the immune system by binding to intercellular adhesion molecule-3; DC-SIGN is a C-type lectin expressed on the surface of dendritic cells (DCs), efficiently binds and transmits HIVs and simian immunodeficiency viruses to susceptible cells; DC-SIGNR is a closely related homolog; both can bind to multiple strains of HIV-1, HIV-2, and simian immunodeficiency virus and transmit these viruses to both T cell lines and human peripheral blood mononuclear cells; RefSeq NM_014257
