Mouse Galectin-2 Antibody

  
  • Species Reactivity
    Mouse
  • Specificity
    Detects mouse Galectin-2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Galectin-2 is observed and no cross-reactivity with rhGalectin-4, -8, -10, recombinant mouse Galectin-1, -3, -7, or -9 is observed.

Data Examples
Detection of Mouse Galectin‑2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse stomach tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Rat Anti-Mouse Galectin‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6667) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for Galectin‑2 at approximately 15 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Immunohistochemistry
Galectin‑2 in Mouse Stomach. Galectin‑2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse stomach using Rat Anti-Mouse Galectin‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6667) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Rat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS017) and counter­stained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to gastric pits.

Background: Galectin-2

Galectin-2 (Gal-2; also LEG2, HL14 and L-14-II) is a 14-15 kDa member of the S-type (1-CRD type) lectin family of proteins. It is a potentially secreted, noncovalent homodimer that is expressed by stomach mucosal columnar epithelium, small intestine Goblet cells and keratinocytes. Galectin-2 is reported to bind to CD29, and initiate CD8+ T cell apoptosis. Structurally, it serves to bind nonsialylated poly-NAcetyllactosamine motifs. Mouse Galectin-2 is 130 amino acids (aa) in length. There is one galectin domain (aa 4-130) that contains one dimerization interface (aa 123-128). Full-length mouse Galectin-2 shares 86% and 66% aa identity with rat and human Galectin-2, respectively.
