CHI3L1, also known as chitinase, a secreted protein, is a carbohydrate-binding lectin with a preference for chitin. It may play a role in defense against pathogens, or in tissue remodeling. It may also play an important role in the capacity of cells to respond to and cope with changes in their environment. CHI3L1 is present in activated macrophages, articular chondrocytes, synovial cells as well as in liver. It is undetectable in muscle tissues, lung, pancreas, mononuclear cells, or fibroblasts.

CHI3L1, also commonly known as chitinase or YKL-40, has been studied as a biomarker for disease onset and progression for a variety of cancers.
Of the ovarian cancer biomarkers tested in prediagnostic specimens, from the PLCO, CA125 remains the single best biomarker for ovarian cancer and has its strongest signal within six months of diagnosis. CHI3L1 (chitinase) alone was not a strong predictor.
