Chitinase-3-like protein 3, also referred to as Chil 3, Ym1 and ECF-L, is a secreted protein that is primarily produced by macrophages during inflammation. It is only expressed in rodents, but expression profile and domain organization suggest a functional overlap with human AMCase and SI-CLP. Chil 3 has chemotactic activity for eosinophils, T-cells and polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and plays a role in the inflammatory response elicited by parasitic infections, lung disorders and allergy.
This lectin binds chitin, heparin and GlcN oligomers. Although Chil 3 shares homology with chitinase family proteins, it has no enzymatic activity.
