Data Example

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 # MAB1154) 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.

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.
