|Calculated MW||27202 Da|
|Application & Usage||The peptide is used for blocking the antibody activity of Galectin-3. It usually blocks the antibody activity completely in Western blot analysis by incubating the peptide with equal volume of antibody for 30 minutes at 37°C.|
|Other Names||Galectin-3, Gal-3, 35 kDa lectin, Carbohydrate-binding protein 35, CBP 35, Galactose-specific lectin 3, IgE-binding protein, Laminin-binding protein, Lectin L-29, Mac-2 antigen, Lgals3|
|Formulation||50 µg (0.2 mg/ml) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 0.1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Galectin-3 Blocking Peptide is for research use only and 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. 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 (By similarity). Together with DMBT1, required for terminal differentiation of columnar epithelial cells during early embryogenesis.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Secreted. Note=Secreted by a non- classical secretory pathway and associates with the cell surface|
