Galectin-1 is a p-galactoside binding lectin that has been implicated in a variety of cellular processes in different tissues, including skeletal muscle. Initial studies investigating the phenotype of a null mouse model for galectin-1 suggested that there were no obvious differences between the musculature of the null mouse and that of the wild-type mouse. However, in vitro studies suggested that the addition of galectin-1 Improved the fusion of myoblasts to myotubes and caused dermal fibroblasts to convert to the myogenic lineage.
