Galectin-3 plays an important role in adhesion, proliferation, differentiation, angiogenesis and metastasis in multiple tumours. To investigate the role of galectin-3 in melanoma pathogenesis we examined the expression of galectin-3 in melanocytic lesions and analysed the correlation between galectin-3 expression and clinicopathologic factors including patient survival and BRAF mutation status.
