      Galectins are beta-galactoside binding lectins which are implicated in several fundamental biological processes including development, adhesion and modulation of immune responses. In this study, we show that galectin-3 is expressed during meningococcal infection and can bind to the lipopolysaccharide molecules of Neisseria meningitidis, enhancing the adhesion of the pathogen to macrophages. Furthermore, we demonstrate that galectin-3 promotes bacteraemia, suggesting that the meningococcus can exploit this lectin to enhance survival in the host.
