Gal397_a_Purified_Galectin-3_Mac-2_Antibody_WB_081516
Total cell lysate from MCF7 cells (lane 1, 15 µg), Jurkat cells (lane 2, 15 µg), 3T3-L1 (lane 3, 15 µg) and Raw264.7 (lane 4, 15 µg) were resolved by electrophoresis (4-20% Tris-Glycine gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with purified anti-mouse/human Galectin-3 (Mac-2) antibody (clone Gal397). Proteins were visualized using an HRP Goat anti-mouse IgG Antibody and chemiluminescence detection. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-β-actin antibody (clone 2F1-1) was used as a loading control.

Description

Galectin-3 (galactose-specific lectin 3) is a glycoprotein, also known as Mac-2, Gal-3, RL-29, galactose-specific lectin 3, CBP-35, L-34, and εBP. It is a member of animal β-galactoside-binding protein family that is expressed in cell nucleus, cytoplasm, plasma membrane, or extracellular matrix by variety of tumor cells, monocytes/macrophages, epithelial cells, Kupffer cells, and dendritic cells. Galectin-3 contains carbohydrate recognition domains and binds to β-galactoside residues bearing glycoproteins, such as as IgE, IgA, galactose, casein kinase I, laminin, mucin, LAMPs, and CD66. Galectin-3 is an adhesion molecule and plays an important role in regulation of cell proliferation, differentiation and tumor cell metastasis. Galectin-3 structurely possesses NWGR motif that is conserved in BH-1 domain of BCL-2 family and functions as an anti-apoptotic molecule.
