Mouse Galectin-7 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects mouse Galectin-7 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, no cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Galectin‑1, ‑3, ‑4, recombinant human (rh) Galectin-2, -7, or -8 is observed. In Western blots, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with rhGalectin‑3, approximately 10% cross-reactivity with rhGalectin-7, and no cross-reactivity with rhGalectin-1 is observed.

Galectin‑7 in Mouse Thymus. Galectin-7 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse thymus using Rat Anti-Mouse Galectin-7 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1304) 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 labeling was localized to the cytoplasm of lymphocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: Galectin-7

The galectins constitute 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. The galectins have been classified into the prototype galectins (-1, -2, -5, -7, -10, -11, -13, -14), which contain one CRD and exist either as a monomer or a noncovalent homodimer; the chimera galectins (Galectin-3) containing one CRD linked to a nonlectin domain; and the tandem-repeat galectins (-4, -6, -8, -9, -12) consisting of two CRDs joined by a linker peptide. Galectins lack a classical signal peptide and can be localized to the cytosolic compartments where they have intracellular functions. However, via one or more as yet unidentified non-classical secretory pathways, galectins can also be secreted to function extracellularly. Individual members of the galectin family have different tissue distribution profiles and exhibit subtle differences in their carbohydrate-binding specificities. Each family member may preferentially bind to a unique subset of cell-surface glycoproteins (1‑4).

Mouse Galectin-7 is a prototype monomeric galectin. It is expressed in stratified epithelia and is significantly down-regulated in squamous cell carcinomas. Galectin-7 is a pro-apoptotic protein that is highly induced by the tumor suppressor protein p53. It functions intracellularly upstream of JNK activation to enhance cytochrome c release during apoptosis (5). Galectin-7 may also be involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions and exogenous galectin has been found to accelerate the re‑epithelialization of wounds (6).
