CD302/CLEC13A (C-type lectin domain family 13 member A), also known as C-type lectin receptor DCL-1, is a type I transmembrane C-type lectin DCL-1/CD302. DCL-1 protein was highly conserved among the human, mouse, and rat orthologs. DCL-1 ectodomain contains only one CRD, whereas other type I transmembrane C-type lectins contain more than one domain (e.g. selectins and MMR). DCL-1 CP contains several putative motifs, including a Tyr-based internalization, a cluster of acidic amino acids, and Ser and Tyr phosphorylation motifs, suggesting that DCL-1 CP mediates not only endocytosis and late endosome targeting but also signaling. DCL-1 may be another cell/matrix adhesion receptor integrated in cell adhesion complexes and that DCL-1 dysfunction may affect APC adhesion and migration, causing suppression of APC function.
