Secondary Information

Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells dominant place of CL-46 expression is the thymus; also present in liver and moderate expression was detected in the mammary gland and in tissues throughout the digestive system
Protein Function involved in the innate immune defense; bind to microbial surface carbohydrates inducing aggregation and, thereby, impeding infectivity; binds to the collectin receptor (C1qR) localized on many types of cells identified as a surface variant of calreticulin; show antiviral activities towards influenza A virus and rotaviruses ; displays protective activity against bacterial infections
Biochemical Properties form tetramers; stabilized by noncovalent interactions (strong hydrophobic forces in α-helical bundle) and covalently by disulfide bridges between cysteine residues in the N-terminal or collagen regions; high resemblance with conglutinin; CL-46 bind to a range of sugar residues including mannose, fucose, glucose, maltose, GlcNAc or ManNAc
Significance in milk provide the first line of defence against these microbes
PTMs Potential N-glycosylation site is localized at asparagine 90 in the collagen-like region
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions 43-215
DisProt Annotation
