Galectin 3 Rat anti-Human, Mouse, Clone: eBioM3/38 (M3/38), eBioscience
Rat Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: Invitrogen 14530181
Description: The eBioM3/38 antibody reacts with mouse Galectin-3 (Mac-2). Galectins are a family of animal lectins which appear to exhibit a variety of biological functions. Galectin 3 (aka LGALS3, galactose-specific soluble lectin 3, Mac-2, L-29) is one of the more extensively studied members of this family and is a 30 kDa beta-galactoside-binding protein. Due to a C-terminal carbohydrate binding site, Galectin 3 is capable of binding IgE and mammalian cell surfaces only when homodimerized or homo-oligomerized. Galectin 3 is normally distributed in epithelia of many organs and various inflammatory cells, including macrophages, as well as dendritic cells and Kupffer cells. The expression of this lectin is up-regulated during inflammation, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and through trans-activation by viral proteins. This monoclonal antibody eBioM3/38 crossreacts to human Galectin-3 (LGALS3). Applications Reported: This eBioM3/38 (M3/38) antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting (WB), immunohistology staining of frozen tissue sections, immunohistology staining of paraffin embedded tissue sections, and ELISA. Applications Tested: This eBioM3/38 (M3/38) antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of mouse PECs (thioglycollated elicied peritioneal cells). This can be used at less than or equal to 0.25 µg per test.A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. 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. 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.
