CLEC17A

A gene on chromosome 19p13.12 that encodes a C-type lectin domain protein which is a cell surface receptor possibly involved in carbohydrate-mediated communication between cells in the germinal centre. CLEC17A binds glycans with terminal alpha-linked mannose or fucose residues. It is expressed on dividing B-cells of germinal centres in various tissues, including lymph nodes, tonsils, stomach, intestine, appendix and spleen.
