Data Examples
Detection of Galectin‑3 in Human Blood Monocytes by Flow Cytometry. LPS-treated peripheral blood monocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human Galectin‑3 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # IC11542P, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # IC0041P, open histogram). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed with Flow Cytometry Fixation Buffer (Catalog # FC004) and permeabilized with Flow Cytometry Permeabilization/Wash Buffer I (Catalog # FC005).

Background: Galectin-3
Galectin-3, also known as Mac-2, L29, CBP35 and IgE Binding Protein, 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 where it forms homodimers, or heterodimers, likely with DMBT1. It is reported to complex with Integrins alpha3 and beta1. Galectin-3 is known to circulate and show elevation in inflammatory disorders.
