Both RUNX2 and RUNX1 can stimulate transcription of the LGALS3 gene, encoding Galectin-3 (Vladimirova et al. 2008, Zhang et al. 2009). Galectin 3 is expressed in myeloid progenitors and its levels increase during the maturation process (Le Marer 2000). Galectin 3 is highly expressed in pituitary tumors and glioma (Vladimirova et al. 2008, Zhang et al. 2009).
