1H, 13C, and 15N backbone and side-chain chemical shift assignments for the 31 kDa human galectin-7 (p53-induced gene 1) homodimer, a pro-apoptotic lectin

Galectins are multifunctional proteins with carbohydrate/protein-binding properties and distinct expression profiles. Homodimeric galectin-7 (p53-induced gene 1) is a potent pro-apoptotic effector with clinical relevance. Here, we report 1H, 13C, and 15N chemical shift assignments for human galectin-7 dimer as determined by using heteronuclear, triple resonance NMR spectroscopy.
