Galectin-3 (GAL3, Carbohydrate Binding Protein 35, CBP35, Galactose Specific Lectin 3, Galactoside Binding Protein, GALBP, IgE Binding Protein, Laminin Binding Protein, Lectin Galactose Binding Soluble 3, LGALS3, MAC2)
Description:
Galectin-3 is a homotypical cell adhesion lectin binding to beta-galactosidase and laminin. It is down regulated in certain colon cancers and breast cancers facilitating their metastasis. It has been proved to be a useful marker for anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Flow Cytometry, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 6ug/ml
Western Blot: 1ug/ml detects a band at ~30kD
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
