Acid-binding Hemagglutinin, Sialic

A Family of Sialic Acid binding Proteins found in Vertebrate species. They are transmembrane Proteins which act as Cell Surface Receptors for a variety of sialylated Glycoconjugates. While a subset of siglec protein subtypes are evolutionarily conserved between mammalian species, there are many others that are species specific.
