|Other Names||Galectin-3, Gal-3, 35 kDa lectin, Carbohydrate-binding protein 35, CBP 35, Galactose-specific lectin 3, Galactoside-binding protein, GALBP, IgE-binding protein, L-31, Laminin-binding protein, Lectin L-29, Mac-2 antigen, LGALS3, MAC2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13725b was selected from the C-term region of LGALS3. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Galactose-specific lectin which binds IgE. May mediate with the alpha-3, beta-1 integrin the stimulation by CSPG4 of endothelial cells migration. Together with DMBT1, required for terminal differentiation of columnar epithelial cells during early embryogenesis (By similarity). In the nucleus: acts as a pre-mRNA splicing factor. Involved in acute inflammatory responses including neutrophil activation and adhesion, chemoattraction of monocytes macrophages, opsonization of apoptotic neutrophils, and activation of mast cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Secreted. Note=Secreted by a non-classical secretory pathway and associates with the cell surface|
|Tissue Location||A major expression is found in the colonic epithelium. It is also abundant in the activated macrophages Expressed in fetal membranes.|

This gene encodes a member of the galectin family ofcarbohydrate binding proteins. Members of this protein family havean affinity for beta-galactosides. The encoded protein ischaracterized by an N-terminal proline-rich tandem repeat domainand a single C-terminal carbohydrate recognition domain. Thisprotein can self-associate through the N-terminal domain allowingit to bind to multivalent saccharide ligands. This proteinlocalizes to the extracellular matrix, the cytoplasm and thenucleus. This protein plays a role in numerous cellular functionsincluding apoptosis, innate immunity, cell adhesion and T-cellregulation. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcriptvariants.
