|Intelectin‑1/Omentin in Mouse Intestine. Intelectin‑1/Omentin was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse intestine using 10 µg/mL Sheep Anti-Human Intelectin‑1/Omentin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4254) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Intelectin-1 (intestinal lectin; also ITLN-1 and omentin) is a 40 kDa Ca-dependent galactofuranose-binding lectin that is not a C-type lectin. It is expressed on multiple cell types and appears to participate in insulin signaling and microbe recognition. The human ITLN-1 preproprecursor is 313 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an 18 aa signal sequence, a 280 aa mature segment (aa 19-298), and a 15 aa C-terminal proregion that is cleaved to generate a GPI-linkage. One fibrinogen-related domain exists in the mature molecule (aa 36-209). Human ITLN-1 exists as a disulfide-linked glycosylated homotrimer. Mouse ITLN-1 is unglycosylated and a monomer. Mature human ITLN-1 is 82% aa identical to mouse ITLN-1. Human ITLN-1 shows one alternate start site at Met72, and a splice form that contains a 32 aa substitution for aa 264-313.
