C-type lectin domain family 4 member H2; Mediates the endocytosis of plasma glycoproteins to which the terminal sialic acid residue on their complex carbohydrate moieties has been removed. The receptor recognizes terminal galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine units. After ligand binding to the receptor, the resulting complex is internalized and transported to a sorting organelle, where receptor and ligand are disassociated. The receptor then returns to the cell membrane surface; C-type lectin domain containing
Synonyms: ASGR2, ASGR2p, hASGR2, HBXBP, I3L1H2 ...
