Abstract
Aspergillus fumigatus is an opportunistic mold that infects patients who are immunocompromised or have chronic lung disease, causing significant morbidity and mortality in these populations. While the factors governing the host response to A. fumigatus remain poorly defined, neutrophil recruitment to the site of infection is critical to clear the fungus. Galectin-3 is a mammalian β-galactose-binding lectin with both antimicrobial and...
