Dendritic cell-specific ICAM-3 grabbing non-integrin (DC-SIGN or CD299) and DC-SIGN related protein (DC-SIGNR, DC-SIGN2, L-SIGN or CD209L) are type II membrane proteins that are mannose-specific calcium-dependent (C-type) lectins. The two proteins share 77% amino acid identity. DC-SIGN mediates interactions between dendritic cells (DCs) and T cells. Both DC-SIGN and DC-SIGNR have been shown to bind HIV, hepatitis C glycoproteins, Ebola virus glycoproteins and the cellular adhesion protein ICAM-3 (1-4). DC-SIGN and DC-SIGNR appear to selectively recognize and bind viral proteins containing a large portion of high-mannose oligosaccharides (5). Though DC-SIGN and DC-SIGNR are found on the same chromosome, they are not expressed in the same tissue. DC-SIGN is expressed solely on Dendritic cells while DC-SIGNR is found on endothelial cells in the liver and lymph node sinuses and in a significant portion of capillary endothelial cells in term placenta (1, 4).
