Description…

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.
