Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human Galectin‑3 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Galectin‑3 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of COLO 205 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line, MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line, and U‑118‑MG human glioblastoma/astrocytoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Galectin‑3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB11542) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Galectin‑3 at approximately 28 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Intracellular Staining by Flow Cytometry Detection of Galectin-3 in Human Blood Monocytes by Flow Cytometry. View Larger

Detection of Galectin-3 in Human Blood Monocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood monocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human Galectin-3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB11542, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB004, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin.

Background: Galectin-3

Galectin-3, also known as Mac-2, L29, CBP35 and epsilon BP, is a member of a large family of carbohydrate-binding proteins with specificity for N-acetyl-lactosamine-containing glycoproteins. At least 14 mammalian galectins, which share structural similarities in their carbohydrate recognition domains (CRD), have been identified to date. Galectin-3 is expressed in tumor cells, macrophages, activated T cells, osteoclasts, epithelial cells and fibroblasts.
