Description

General description

LGALS3 (lectin, galactoside-binding, soluble, 3) gene encodes a galactose-specific lectin called ′Galectin-3′ that belongs to the galectin family of carbohydrate binding proteins. It has a molar mass of approximately 30kDa and may be localized to the extracellular matrix, the cytoplasm and the nucleus. It has a proline- and glycine-rich NH(2)-terminal domain that is fused to a single C-terminal domain that binds to galactose-containing glycoconjugates.

Immunogen

Galectin-3 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Application

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Galectin-3 functions in acute inflammation, chronic inflammation and tissue fibrogenesis and may serve as a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of various inflammatory diseases. It forms a complex with NG2 proteoglycan and alpha3beta1 integrin on the cell surface and promotes endothelial cell motility and morphogenesis during early stages of neovascularization. It associates with Bcl-2, an apoptosis repressor in the cytoplasm and exhibit anti-apoptotic activity. Gal-3 also serves as a pre-mRNA splicing factor by interacting with the U1 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP) complex. It is found to be involved in the progression and metastasis of several types of tumors. It is found to participate in the regulation of T-cell functions.
